I noticed this week she was losing weight dramatically. We pulled her from the field 3 days ago and called the vet. In the mean time I put a magnet in her and started penicillin. The vet said it sounds like a mag deficiency since she was just put out on pasture. We put her in the chute two days ago and gave her Muse and b complex. We drew blood today and sent it out. She eats grain and drinks a ton but only nibbles at hay. She is salivating a lot and she is practically peeing out her ass it is so watery. I think its like that since she isnt eating any hay. She isnt huanched or grunting like hardware so i dont know if its that but thats all I thought of at first. She is standing but walks slowly. Any thoughts on pulling the calf or remedies to get her up and going. Thanks Mike.
