Veterinarian Dr. Don Goodman learns that one of his client's cows is limping, in this Vets On Call series video. Rancher Bo Self is concerned about his cow. "I like to take care of my animals just like I would my own feet or my kids' feet or my dog's feet," says Self. "My cows are the same thing."



To conduct an exam, animals are lifted in a hydraulic chute which allows Dr. Goodman to treat the animal comfortably while ensuring his and their safety. He explains, "It's basically presenting the feet to us to work on, rather than pulling them back, injuring the animal, injuring you. It's safer for everyone." 

After getting a closer look, he discovers a crack and lesions in the cow's hoof and is able to provide treatment.



Dr. Don Goodman of Navasota, Texas, has enjoyed working around cows his entire life and has worked more than 30 years as a veterinarian.  "I work primarily on bovine cattle in the beef end of the industry," he says, "They're not just general, run-of-the-mill type of animal. People expect you to be on top of your game."
