I have a sick calf! He is a jersey bull calf, born april 30. He was on mom for a bit so he got colostrum. Our 4-h dairy leader brought him to us, first he got scours and i was told to put him on the powdered tetracycline, one teaspoon in his bottle for about 5-7 days. i have been doing that, now all of a sudden he has this dry cough, kind of heaving. He is on goats milk, but there wasn't any weight gain so i started adding one cup of replacer to his goats milk, he is doing better as i see some covering over his ribs. As for the dry cough, the dairy leader says it' s prob bec of the goat milk (?) or bec i had him on wood shavings. He says he does not recommend that bedding for calves....then why on earth didn't he tell me that when he put the calf in the barn with me???! I guess my question is, should i give him a dose of LA 200, even tho he's on the powder antiobiotic? He is laying down and just doesn't look good, he looked fine this morning. I have two other calves who are thriving on goats milk, as a matter of fact i have always raised them on goats milk with good results. I"m having trouble believing that that is what his problem is...
