The neighbor called the other day (tuesday) and asked if we wanted a bottle calf with a gimpy leg. He had got it cheap at the sale barn & then decided he did not want to mess with it. I said yes and went & picked it up and thats when a gimpy leg turned out to be an injured leg. He is a little angus bull calf about a month old & he weighs around 125-150 pounds. His one back leg is badly swollen in the hip area, he will put weight on it & is moving it as he walks but it is an akward and slow movement. He was able to chase my 9 year old across the yard when we got him home so yeah he still got some spunk in him.He is taking the bottle well (dairyway milk replacer 2qts times per day) & gets up and down with out assistance but with all the swelling I know there has to be something wrong. He had some dried poo on his tail and down his legs so I went ahead and gave him two sustain lll calf bolus on wendnesday but his yellow green poo still seems runny. Thought it might be from all the stress of the auction and new home and food but with the leg I dont know. I know i need to get him to the vet for shots and such but I dont know if I will be able to afford it this week and it bothers me thinking that there might be something I could be doing. So do you think I should leave him alone and see if the swelling goes down on its own or should I be giving him some antibiotics and anti inflamatorys?
