A couple of days by herself, not eating or drinking, while she walks she shakes back legs in air. She is approx in the 8 month very big. I administered 45CC LA-200 no help.

Keep a very close eye on her to make sure she isn't eating when you aren't aware of it. Sometimes a calf will lay in such a way as to cause pressure on nerves that will cause peculiar happenings with the back legs of a cow. Before giving indescrimiant antibiotics, take her temperature and insure that is a problem.

I agree with dun re: calf positioning. If in doubt, get her examined by your vet. There are, unfortunately, some deficiencies which could cause some problems in late gestation, but LA won't touch those. In fact, I don't like LA in late pregnancy--it causes enamel hypoplasia and can cause broken mouth, depending on the calf's stage of development. V
