The foot of the leg that the lamb is limping on should be inspected and trimmed. If it is moist and has an extremely bad odor, it may be footrot, a very contagious disease caused by bacteria. The loose part of the foot should be carefully trimmed and the foot soaked in 10% zinc sulfate. Check with your leader or veterinarian on where to obtain the zinc. Separate the lamb from any others until foot is healed.
