The bull is further sedated with 200 mg xylazine injected intramuscularly. At the same time 100 mL of 2% lidocaine are injected into the sacrococcygeal extradural space to paralyse both hindlegs for safety reasons and because it was not possible to find a superficial vein because of the distal limb oedema. Flunixin is injected intravenously when the bull is recumbent. ii. A stab incision is made into the heel bulb abscess which releases pus and necrotic tissue.
