Hey, I hope these get through!! Isn't she just the cutest thing? I have never seen such big eye on a cow. The umbilical infection is gone!! She has pneumonia now:shrug: but we are working on that! Still tube feeding her three times a day, but she seems to be getting stronger. Thank you all so very much for your most excellent advice!

Yay! You are doing a great job with her! She STILL wont suck? Hmmm..

It's great to see her up on her feet.
I think Madsaw could be right about her not being too hungry. That would be something easy to try...skip a feeding.

Also, maybe she would drink out of a bucket. It would be something to try...she wouldn't have to suck as hard, esp. if her throat is sore, which it probably is.
Sorry for the loss.

You did your best and that's about all you can do.

Better luck next time....
