    Mysterious calf death?

    Not sure, but it ain't too often that a snake bite will swell that much....and if tissue toxic it will start to slough off after a day or two, odd that it was only one side that swelled..I agree, you should have the vet do a necropsy to find out for sure what caused it. :?

    A Puzzling One

    Vetinarian is your best bet here..we could all be guessing for years and not get it, you mneed to physically evaluate the individual animal to really get a diagnosis. :cboy:

    Anaphylactic sHOCK

    that would depend on what the symptoms were when it died. if it died in 10 minutes, anaphalactic shock is a real are the rest of the calves? if they were dosed the same, and they are all ok, it could be an untoward reaction of that one calf. a post mortem might be an idea.

    106 temp in heifer.

    nuflor is fine, but the la200 is only good for a day or two, so hit her again....use a stethoscope to listen to her lungs from both sides....if really rattley or gurgley, see the vet asap....

    Effects of antibiotics on vacinations

    the antibiotics will lessen the production of antibodies from the animals own immune system, thereby lessening the effect of the vaccine to fight the disease it is intended to take care of. if the antibiotic kills the vaccine antigen off, the cow will not respond by making it's own antibodies.

    a post mortum from a vet would be well worth the money if you can....when you have a smaller operation each one is a real loss to you. maybe a post could tell you if there is something that could get other cows so you can remove it....
