need advise baby calf

HeatherF4August 4, 2014

Hello, I have a calf that is about 2 1/2 mo old now. There were issues with her back legs which seem to get better but now having issues with what I believe to be weak ankles? Her front feet are almost a "L" shape. Is it too late to try to help her?

you need to call a vet so they can look at the calf and tell you best way to handle the situation

Definitely what bulldinkie says. A good vet who routinely treats bovines needs to be your best friend because they can save you money in the long run.

Have you checked for white muscle disease?
