Have 9 yr old brown swiss cow, freshed 12 weeks ago, has been also taking extra calf and doing well,with plenty of milk. noticed sunday she did not want her grain and milk was down, all day she did not eat, layed down got up, she eats dry hay good quality and gets some alfalfa, but not to much, excess to abundent fresh water, grain ground oats and corn at milking time. ears lower than normal but eyes clear goes away from you if you croud her, let calf suck in am, but pulled both calf's on pm. only small bag, but milk has no blood in it, temp is normal, but heart rate is up, monday morn, cow up down, but note stool very scant and is brandywine color, some old blood and new blood in stool, urine dark also, but do not think she has drank all day either.Called vet, rectal exam done same black red stool around gloves, vet can hear bowel sounds, cow appears larger on lower right abdomen, she is not interested in food water or her bawling calf, no chewing of cud all day and can see she is having pain. Vet does not know what to think, hardware lodged somewhere, ? ulcer, does not think she twisted a gut or one of her 4 tummy's, tried charcole, sulfa,and anacid. Then la 200 IM. checked hay and no clover in it, has anyone ever seen this before, any advice. now I'll be bottle feeding and probally have 1 dead cow, our vet was not encouraging and exspects demise.Cow now lets you aroud her when up or down and does not try to go away, nose still wet and cool. Lord I hate losing one of gods creatures.Thanks Connie in SD.
