Injections of oxytetracycline sting. And its no fun pushing that thick stuff through a wide bore needle.It's very effective though. I think you're on a good path with fever going down. It's important to deal with these issues sooner rather than later and continue with the meds. Oxy has a long effective period, so you only have to administer every other day for 10 days or so and I really like that you can buy it over the counter rather than pay double price with the vet (here anyway) and not need to wait for an order or drive to the vet if you need more fast. There is a milk withdrawal of five days. When. you get the vet there be sure and ask lots of questions. And Id be curious if he/she has seen other similar cases this summer in your region.

I use my stanchion for shots, as that's my only option. They get over it. I do try to rub the spot after an injection, which seems to help. Kind of like when you bang your elbow and have to rub it out. Hope she's feeling better soon.
The Long Acre: Home to a motley crew of milking and beef cattle, a couple yard cops (dogs), too many chickens, and 5 supervisors (cats).
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.
