In three years one hundred cases of cattle presented with history of limping were taken in this study. 72% cases showed lesions of foot rot and was confirmed the same by gram staining smears obtained from the lesions. Foot rot was treated with sulfadiazine-trimethoprim 2400 to 3600 mg intramuscularly for three days along with 5% formalin foot bath for 10-20 days. Advised to drizzle the remaining foot bath solution throughout the cattle shed. Recovery rate was 95%. The formalin drizzled farms showed no further occurrence of foot rot in any cattle.
