Hi, I'm Dr. Bonk. I'm sorry to hear about your goat's troubles. Footrot usually manifests as swelling and redness between the toes. If severe enough, it can extend up to the fetlock joint. It's best if you can keep the foot clean and dry. You can tape the toes together to help keep it clean if needed.

You can clean the foot with warm water and a dilute iodine solution.

Noromycin is a good antibiotic for footrot. The dose for this goat would be 1 ml in the muscle once daily for 5 days.

I hope this helps. Please contact me with any further questions you may have. Thank you and good luck!
