    I have a 4-5 month old calf she started going downhill I have done everything I can possibly think of. she was moving around eating and drinking then her temp started fluctuating I've given her meds and wormed her. She's still interested in eating and drinking but now is not able to get up and stand on her own. I'm at a loss for what else I can possibly do. Anyone ever have this happen or have a suggestion. We raise beef.

    I'm new to this site and didn't even realize I put this post in the wrong section lol...the vet did come out she either had a spinal chord injury or spinal chord infection we put her down.
