Need advice on a hoof. ABSCESS!

So I noticed a yearling doe limping last week, not baring any weight on her left front foot. Called the vet, and scheduled him to be out this weekend. He came out, crazy abscess between her toes. Drained, flushed and gave her a hefty shot of antibiotics and left it open, moved her to a lush pen that has really good grass in it. Vet mentioned something about removing one of her toes. Has anyone done this? Any success? Just hoping she heals up okay. Will be giving another dose of oxytetracycline tomorrow.

Hoof rot, just like cows get. a trace mineral block with eddi(iodine) for them to lick on will help too
