Calf problem

Postby grandlake » Wed Feb 21, 2018 3:18 pm

Heavy mucus from calf's nose this morning. Breathing not labored. Any suggestions? LA-200 or more aggressive.

What’s the calves temperature? Probably will need something stronger than LA200 though.

Agree. Definitely take it's temp. Is it nursing, scouring or dehydrated? I would assume pneumonia and I generally treat with Resflor Gold or Draxxin BUT I would suggest calling your vet, see if he/she agrees & what they recommend as treatment for your area.

I did contact the vet and gave it a shot of Resflor. I will give another shot in 48 hrs.

LA200 is a great drug for footrot or pinkeye, but NOT respiratoy.
