The investigations performed at S.C. Agronova Impex SRL. from the county of Cluj, on a stock of 490 Simmenthal cattle (430 dairy cows and 60 gestant heifers), during December 2011 - March 2012, emphasizes a prevalence of the podal disorders of 26.0% in cows (112 animals with podal disorders) and 15% pregnant heifers (9 animals with podal disorders).The incidence of the podal disorders on cattle nucleus stock in this unit, in correlation with the evolution type, emphasizes some aspects: necrotic pododermatites 9.5% (47 cases); podal ulcer – Rusterholz 5.7% (28 cases); necrosis between fingers 6.5% (32 cases); tiloma 2.8% (14 cases). We must note that frequency of these podal disorders reported to the nucleus stock is with 10.4% biger in posterior trend compared to anterior trend (35 cases anterior trend – 7.1% and 86 cases posterior trend – 17.5%. The used therapeutic patterns aimed a rigorous surgical cleaning and use of different drug formulas function of evolution form, meaning: in pododermatites, ether iodoform + Petlain (3 treatments at 3 days interval); in necrosis between fingers, ether iodoform +Spray (2 treatments at 3 days interval); in podal ulcer Spray with antibiotics + sulfonamides (2 treatments at 4 days interval), and in tiloma Spray with antibiotics (2 treatments at 3 days interval)
