We do have some castor oil. Analy???
I meant I don't have oil or a way to administer it. Now I remember we do have castor oil. That used to be a cure all. Then again so was enema's, and cocaine.I don't have a way to give him mineral oil or a way to administer.
If he is swallowing at all, then use a syringe with mineral oil.... you can use cooking oil if that's all you have. As big a syringe as you have... give 10-20 cc or more at a time... space it out a little (hourly) something to "lubricate" the gut tract...giving it a little time to work inbetween...but it HAS to go down into the stomachs....
I have never given an enema to a bovine... if the blockage (constipation) is close to the end of the bowels it could work... don't see where it would hurt.... but it needs to be loosened from the rumen end too. Still, trying something that would not hurt them unless they have ruptured something...(is not the worst you could do) .... a rupture would mean quick intervention by a vet so probably not something you could fix in time if you didn't know about it anyway....
Thanks.Castor Oil from either end wouldn't hurt... but if you have any size syringe, I would try some down the throat too....
For constipation or after they've plum laid down MAYBE due to weather. The cold front hit hear this morning with a 42 I think they said, predicted was 25 degree in Tulsa this morning to teens with negative teens wind chill by 8 am. He was in a shelter but walking around until he just fell over. It wasn't an hour after I was out there with him that I saw him and took him inside.Warm Epsom salt water....I've used for horses
