    Okay, so I've just realized that my bottle calf's front right foot is like spread apart oddly. Is that normal? I've never seen this, but maybe I've just never payed attention. I did some searching and saw foot rot, but the skin/hoof looks fine, but the toes are like spread completely apart. What's your opinion on what it is and what's the solution, or is there one? It looks kinda like this, only the leg isn't swollen:confused:;( this isn't my calf) Unknown.jpeg

    Is it limping? If not it ain't foot rot

    It does now that you enlarge the picture. I'm thinking foot rot. Give it five cc not all in one place of dexamethasone or banamine which will take the swelling away and about 20 cc of la200 or LA 300 and that should knock it right out.
