ok, we have never had a calf with tetanus before, we are under vet care, but I feel like I'm missing something or we're too far gone...need some input. Calf was born 5/15. tagged and banded on 6/1. yesterday counting heads because mom was yelling and we found this little guy stiff as a board. We gave him penicillin, cut out the ear tags-ear was infected, banded area fine. Cleaned both areas with betadine and injected lidocaine into the ear with the infection. Was able to get anti toxin from the vet and a muxcle relaxer, IV fluids(saline/potassium drip). 3cc ACE. We turned him without bloating, today tried to stand him up in the cattle chute with straps to keep him upright. Temp is not elevated, it's within range, but even after all the meds he's still stiff and labored breathing. Is it possible for a calf to survive this or would we be better off puting him down? Have we missed something? Any recommendations to try? It's been 24 hours now and he's not showing signs of improvement. We have him in a dark sound free area, eyes covered(using gel for lubricant, he can't close them all the way) anti toxin page says that temp will elevate shortly before death, so we are trying to keep an eye on that. fluids are going well, but I'm not sure how many bags are safe for him. My thoughts are that when I went in to the ER they gave me one saline bag an hour until they thought I was better , he weighs about the same as me. We are not going to tube him-he's already raspy and I'm worried about pneumonia. Figured the IV would be better. Like I said, we've never seen this before, and I feel like I'm missing something. Anyone have a suggestion?
