Each cow was randomly allocated into two groups. DEXT group (n = 8) was administered intravenously DEXT at a dose of 2 mg/kg body weight 30 min before claw trimming. Control group (n = 6) was administered physiological saline at the same dose 30 min before procedure was carried out. Trimming was performed using a mobile walk-in crush where the head of cow was restrained by a stanchion and the body supported thoracic and thigh belts in all procedures.
