LAMENESS in cattle continues to be one of the largest financial drains on the UK dairy industry. Pain and discomfort associated with lameness may be prolonged and result in unacceptably poor welfare of the affected animal. All too often, appropriate treatment is delayed or neglected due, in part, to lack of recognition, compounded by some common misconceptions regarding pain in this species and the paucity of licensed veterinary products. This article aims to dispel some of those misconceptions and highlight the benefits of controlling pain when treating lame cattle.
