Sick Calf

Help Support CattleToday:



I have a 2 month heifer calf that I found that was looking sickly,Mother was bellowing and her bag was full.The calf refuses to eat from mom and from the bottle I offered.She has no temp,but I can hear her grinding her teeth and I have to pry open her mouth to get the bottle in her mouth.She gets up and just stands in one spot and then lays back down.Any suggestions????

You're describing colic. It could be anything from an abomasal ulcer to a hairball. Frankly, this calf needs a full examination to determine what needs to be done to save it's life. Call the vet! V
