Edema?

Postby MRRherefords » Tue Jan 23, 2018 4:14 pm

I have a cow that is due February 3. Her udder has swelled a lot and she looks like she is retaining water near the vulva. It reminds me of edema. Could this hurt the calf? Is there anything I should do for her? Thanks.

Also her udder is not hard or painful to touch.

Calf should be ok! Let us know when she pops the calf!
