That's great news! Good for you and your mom for working so hard on him!
Brisket went down 3 days after we brought them home and T-Bone went down at 4 days. There was no runny nose or (dizziness). Thanks for the suggestion but I really don't think this was the case.Lizzie098 said:I don't know much about cows but my Uncle does, I was wondering if you gave them "motion sickness" shots for the trip? If you did not this may be the cause of all this. Calves are not used to moving at such a fast pace, so they get sick and usually die from it if they do not get the shots. How fast after you brought them home did they seem to start getting sick? It usually starts 1-3 days after, and if the shot is not administeder in 24hours they usually don't make it. Some sighns are runny nose, dizzy ness, and well there is more. The calves usually get sick fast and go down fast that is why it is best to have the shots administered, I believe before and 2 more after the trip.
I really hope your calf is ok, You seem like such a sweet person for 'not' listening to the vet, and helping the poor thing as much as you can. I really do hope everything turns out for you.
