Hello there, I’m a first timer so I apologize if I’m paranoid. But looking at this calf’s knees, do they look swollen to you? Could this be joint Ill? The calf is almost two weeks old, and a red angus. The reason I’m worrying is because the calf was born in a little creek, I got him out soon after so he could dry. But could his navel had gotten bacteria and it traveled to his knees?? Or do calves look awkward like this normally??
It’s devils own time getting a vet out here to look, but the vet I talked to on the phone said since he isn’t lame he is probably ok. He does move around okay and doesn’t seem to be in pain. But what does it look like to you?

thanks!

Agree with the vet 😊 Just to be safe, can you touch his knees/legs and tell me if they are hot?
He's a cute little fuzzball, you scored!
