I have a 10 month old Jersey Bull. He has been moppie for a couple of days. He is not eating his feed. My husband said that he heard him cough but I have not heard it myself. I can find nothing else to give me a clue as to what is wrong with him. I have given him PCN IM. He is not really down because I can get him up without a problem. He is mainly justly laying around and holding his head down. Anyone got an idea?

I suspect he has a respistory infection and you can take his temp. to see if he has a fever but I would imagine he does. Get a large dose of antibotics in him quickly and repeat daily for at 3 to 5 days.

Pnemonia or something similar. We hve had 2 cows like this in the last 3 weeks. 99% sure its respritory. She he ather may not have a temp. which means hes not fighting it off.

Thanks for the advice. Smoky is doing much better. He still has a little bit of a cough but he is up eating and getting back to his old self. Thanks again
