The search for modern effective means for prevention and treatment of diseases of hooves of farm animals is an urgent and timely issue. The study considers assessment of the incidence and nature of hoof pathologies in highly productive cows in one of the livestock farms of Ryazan region with a production line system and loose housing of animals. The total percentage of lameness in the farm was 17.3%, including acute lameness, when the cow does not lean on a bad limb - 3.6%. After assessing the significance and relevance of the study for this farm, there was an experiment to assess the efficiency of the use of a new antiseptic drug for preventive and therapeutic treatment of hooves based on quaternary ammonium salts, nonionic surface-active materials, copper aldehyde and sulfate. The drug showed high bactericidal activity when studying the total microbial count (51.2% lower than in the control group) and the presence of E. coli bacteria (not detected after exposure). When assessing the presence and nature of the growth of microorganisms on the Endo nutrient medium in the experimental group of animals, the results similar to the comparison drug were noticed.
