She kidded in January so it's not that. I checked her FAMACHA and it looks maybe a little paler than normal, but my herd generally has paler FAMACHA's so I'm not totally sure. I'll run a fecal. I will check her temp again too and listen to her lungs. What would I be listening for when I do that? Just anything abnormal?A fecal for worms and cocci is wise.
Stress can cause both.
When did she kid? If it has been under 2 weeks, check for a uterine infection.
Put on a new surgical glove and gently with the tip of your finger only, insert it , then do the sniff test. Does it stink?
If so, she has an infection. PenG is a good choice.
Other than that, she may have pneumonia starting. Listen to her lungs.
She definitely has something going on with her temp being high.
She does need antibiotics.
Recheck her temp and make sure the thermometer is working properly.
Or she hasn’t been running around or in direct sun prior to taking it.
That's good to know that it's okay to wait and see how her temp is when she cools down. I have a dwindling amount of LOH back on track but I'll give her that too. I gave her some vit. c as well just for an immune boost which she loves. 😝 I noticed a sharp decrease in the amount of hay they are eating yesterday, so I'm very hopeful it's just the grass.I’d also hold off on antibiotics until you have her in a cool place for a couple hours to see how her temp responds. Having a mostly black herd, the weather has played a factor for me as well. If you have LOH GI Back-on- Track you can give her a couple doses of that. Transitioning to lush grasses can cause clumpy poo. I call it the spring flush. ..I hope that’s all it is and Bella feels better soon!
Sorry, missed this. I save the milk for soap or lotions etc. I’m not big on drinking the milk or making food when an animals being treated. It does freeze well and can be saved, some folks I know sell it for crafting only with a full disclosure on it.Now I'm seeing wildly different withdrawal times on the internet, what do you guys generally do for pen or la200?
