She may not have cleaned out good after calving. Might want to check for uterine infection. Not hard to find....she'll stink to high heaven.

Here's an opportunity to learn.. glove up and see if there's another calf (possibly mummified by now) in there.. I'd take her temp before giving an antibiotic though, if there's no fever an antibiotic isn't going to help anything at all... Maybe a shot of lute/estrumate if you figure she hasn't cleaned out yet.

$400 for a farm call and physical exam?? And no, unless tapes you probably won't see a bunch of worms in the feces post deworming.
