There is no doubt that Cowslips are the leading prosthetic device for
lameness in New Zealand cows. Cowslip was developed in UK by Dr Ernie
Logan in the late 1980s, and is now used worldwide. Before fitting a
Cowslip the hoof should be lifted and cleaned, and the cause of the
lameness determined. (A Cowslip should not be applied until the damaged
hoof area is identified, as accidental application to the damaged claw
could exacerbate the injury.) Application of the Cowslip to the healthy
claw allows relief of load-bearing on the damaged claw so that healing
can occur. Instructions for application are as follows: 1. After
ascertaining and treating the injured claw, clean and trim the healthy
claw until the Cowslip is a good fit. 2. Wipe the claw with acetone or
methylated spirits if required, to dry it completely. 3. Mix the liquid
and powder ingredients in the Cowslip until consistent. 4. Press the
Cowslip firmly onto the healthy claw. Tap the toe firmly to ensure the
fit is tight. 5. Leave the foot raised for 2-3 minutes to ensure glue is
set, then lower to a load-bearing position for another 2-3 minutes. The
cow can then be released. The Cowslip will slough-off of its own accord
in two or three weeks, by which time the affected claw should have
recovered. Use the Cowslip 'Original' for all regular-size cows, 'Plus'
for large and heavy cows, and 'X-large' for very large and heavy
animals.
