We would normally be asking the vet this but of course unable to reach a vet with it being a holiday weekend. Left messages with vet and no answered calls. We're hoping somebody might have some advice for us. We have a cow on the ground and she cannot get up. She's been fine and nursing her calf(2 months old) up until yesterday. We found laying on her side and unable to get up. Since we couldn't get a vet we asked a neighbor who seemed to think she might need to be wormed. We gave her the worm medicine and we rolled her to a more sitting position. After a couple of hours she seemed to become more alert and began eating grass around her and she drank some water. She tries to get up but hasn't been able to yet. She's alert and eating and drinking, but still unable to get up. Does anyone have any ideas of what the problem might be or what to do next? We've had cows for a while but have never had this problem before. Our neighbor seemed to think the best thing for her was to put her down, but she has a baby and we only would do that as a last resort. Any help would be appreciated.
