The present study was performed over a period of 15 month with 15 cattle, in-patients of the Clinic for Ruminants, University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna undergoing digit amputation for medical indication. It was investigated, how degree of lameness and motion sequence of the probands develop and change respectively within the 14-days-period of investigation after surgery. On the one hand, it was assumed that there are significant improvements in lameness examination as well as in motion sequence measured with a tri-axial accelerometric device. On the other hand, it was hypothesized that results of lameness examination and accelerometric measurements approximate to those of sound cows within the post-operative period of convalescence.
