Does anyone know if an infection in the fetlock joint can cause bone deterioration?

Yes. Cure rate isn't very high either.

Basics needed to answer questions: age, weight, breed, sex. # affected vs # in group, feed type/amount, prior vaccinations, deworming, antibiotics, any recent changes....

More info = better answers.
