Yesterday afternoon late, I noticed my pet steer (yep) lying down, which is nothing unusual until I realized he was trying to get up and couldn't. He would squirm around and lean back and then try again and again. I checked him over and saw that he had pretty nasty diarrhea so I gave him as much water as he wanted to drink. After about an hour he was able to get up and slowly walk. I watched him occasionally during the night, and this morning he is thankfully up and walking (slowly), but the diarrhea is still there. A friend of mine said this is known as the scours. I was all ready to call the vet last night, but my friend (who raises Angus) said to watch him, now that he is up. But, I want to know what, if anything, I can do for him, other than provide fresh water??
