New unique approach to monitoring hoof disorders such as digital dermatitis

Conventional hoof care products usually have an antibacterial effect, which disinfects sores such as digital dermatitis in the hoof area. This method has a limited effect, however, as after the cow has been put through a hoof bath, it returns to the harmful hoof environment where the bacterial level is very high.
The risk of re-infection is great in these situations. To achieve the full effect of disinfecting a sore, it must be kept clean afterwards, which is not possible in modern housing systems.


Stalosan Hoof was developed to form scabs and to neutralise tissue-decomposing waste products such as ammonia and hydrogen sulphide on the cow’s skin. Cows grazing on grass all year round usually have no problems with DD, for instance. Consequently, this indicates that the hoof environment in the housing system is a primary factor for developing of DD. This is why Stalosan Hoof was developed to protect sores and skin against the harmful hoof environment in the housing unit. This relieves the pressure on the cow’s skin and improves the conditions for sore healing.

  • Forms a protective scab on hoofs being treated for digital dermatitis (DD), for instance, thus promoting the healing process.
  • Neutralises tissue-decomposing ammonia, which would otherwise increase the rate of infection.
  • Neutralises hydrogen sulphide, which would otherwise provide good growing conditions for Treponema bacteria, the primary cause of DD
  • Forms a durable, elastic membrane which protects sores for several days
  • Can be used both to treat urgent cases and as preventive treatment

 

Instructions
Spray undiluted directly on problem areas 2–3 times a week using a backpack sprayer, limewash sprayer or similar spraying unit.
Consumption: 10–15 ml per hoof. It is advisable to rinse the hoofs with water before treatment.

  • It is an advantage to make the treatment part of the milking process, both in carousel milking parlours and pits.
  • The product can also be used to treat calves housed in indoor pens. For safety reasons, it is advisable to use a longer lance-type nozzle in such instances.
  • After a few weeks of treatment, the sore will be covered by dark scabs, which must not be removed. This indicates that the treatment is working, so it should be continued.
