I am hoping someone can help. My In-laws have had poor luck when they play veterinarian and I do not want to lose another one. We have Angus cow down. She was found spread out on all fours. We put her in the barn but she has been down for a week now and is still not bearing any weight. They have put ropes under her and lifted her and she absolutely will not attempt. Last time this happened my husband made a hoist and this wound up doing more damage to the cow. I am at a loss. She eating some but is real thin. The strange thing is that she has some spunk in her. Has anyone ever experienced this and if so how did you resolve it? I welcome ALL comments!
