Antibiotics - fungal infections - unbearable itch - chew foot off. Possible but do they test for more clandestine or systematic infections routinely. How sad.
Cows can't chew their feet off.

Not only can't they reach their feet with their mouths, they don't have teeth on the top front. Just molars. Cows won't bite. You can't make them bite. They're not wired to bite or pick up things with their mouths, other than grass, clover and poisonous plants you'd wish they'd leave be. They don't even really bite grass, they wrap their tongues around it and shear it off with their bottom teeth.
