Swelled chest

Help Support CattleToday:



Friend of mine has a little Holstein heifer that he bought at a sale for next to nothing. She is sick with a cough and the runs. Her chest is swollen and is full of fluid. I stuck a needle in it and pulled some stained water colored fluid out of it. I told him she likely got kicked or push at a feed trough. I recomended that he give her Exenel for the cough and put some DMSO on the chest. He refuses to go to our vet because they don't get along. Any help please.

That is what I told him. He is my friend but some times the most stubborn mule ever. The calf is getting better as far as the cough. The swelling is down in the right front leg now and I think this weekend I will take her to the vet and charge my friend.
