I heard some people use yogurt.
What do you give a calf with diarrhea?
I need that recipe too : )
Scour ban, electrolytes and hay
First detect whether that diarrhea is infectious or nutritional and apply the right intervention.
How to manage that calf:-
- Add biomass during mixing of your cmr.
-Reduce amount of milk you give to that calf depending on your feeding guide.
- use supportive treatment ( anti biotics like Norodine, syvoquinol, and kera).
-Rehydrate the calf with electrolytes, yoghurt,or colostrum.
- Give that calf ringer lactate together with sodium bicarbonate to balance pH if it ispassing stool too much. Monitor it for 3 to 5 days, it will be better.
Rehydrate the calf with electrolytes, yoghurt,or colostrum
Is this yogurt the same as how people eat? or do you make a special yogurt for calves?
It's not a special recipe. the same yogurt we eat, without any sugar though.
Feed the calf with electrolyte in the morning, milk during lunchtime, and electrolyte again in the evening. That's the best way.
As soon as you spot any of the symptoms, isolate them to sickbay immediately because it is highly contagious like covid-19.
