Could be pneumonia you may try giving it a shot of 3 ml of La 200 twice a day and see if it helps also make sure that the bottle you are feeding does not dispense theilk to rapidly this could allow the milk to be getting into the lungs . He should have to work a little to get the milk that will keep it fro entering the lungs

Welcome to the forum. Sorry about your calf. A couple questions.
What's his temperature?
What's his stool look like?
How long has he been down?
Is he sternal?
What led up to him going down?
Does he have access to hay and water 24-7 currently?
