Hi I have a six week old calf that had a bad start (its the same calf that wouldn't suck that I asked about a few weeks ago) its still alive but not a bundle of health. The main issue with it is that it will lie down flat on its side and cannot get up after (it kicks its legs but cannot get up), so I have been standing it up three times a day after which it goes straight to the mothers teat for a feed so there is life in it. Its a little hunched and grinds its teeth and I think has some frothing around the mouth although that could be from milk so not sure. The vet didn't seem to know exactly whats wrong hes given it antibiotics and metacam and now steroids and antibiotics, I think the antibiotis/ metacam worked somewhat from the first visit in that the calf got up on its own a few times for a few days, now its back to lying on its side, other than that I'm at a loss as what to do its future looks bleak. Anyway just posting here on the off chance anyone has any ideas thanks.
