We have a Holstein bull calf that doesn't seem to be feeling well. He stands around with his back arched, but he is eating. No signs of diarrhea, cough, or runny nose. The only visable symptom is runny eyes. I know that isn't much to go on, if anyone has ideas for anything else I can look for, I would appreciate it.
Pneumonia is something to consider. By now you may have read Sally's post below and Seldon's description of pheumonia and its treatment.
In some cases there is no fever with pneumonia. If the immune system is too weak to react there may be no fever. Any time a calf stands hunched up is it is poor sign. If after thinking it over you think your calf has pneumonia you will want to start antibiotic treatment. In any event, find a way to keep him warm and hydrated. And good luck.
claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
