strange symptoms

Help Support CattleToday:



I have an 16 month old bottle raised bull. He stopped eating and showed signs of pneumonia. A lot of yellow and green nasal discharge and trouble breathing. We used LA-200 but it didn't help. We switched to penicillin and that started working. He also had a severe discharge from one eye. He is eating and drinking and gaining weight but the first layer of skin is peeling off his lips and nose and has also started peeling off his legs. Has anyone ever seen anything like this and if so what do I do?

This is a normal reaction from a high fever. It is just the damaged skin peeling off. Animals that don't have perspiration glands eliminate heat thru breathing and the skin that is not normally covered with hair is damaged by the fever. Unless a local infection develops, you don't need to do anything.
