This is so horrible. Did your vet find any answrs?
From your description it sounds like floppy kid syndrome. There can be many causes to it
Calf’s can’t get floppy kid and I have never heard anything like that for calf’s. I’ve also never heard of floppy kid in weaned kids.
I agree though there are so many things that it could be. Good job on going to the vet. I hope you get some answers. While waiting I would check feed out and make sure nothing is up there. Wouldn’t hurt to check their pen/pasture as well. Keep a eye on temps of the rest of them. I’m so sorry your going threw this
That is just awful, I am so sorry I hope you get answers fast. I agree on checking anything they could have eaten. If the hay was a new bale, was it given to any other pen? If it was and those animals are fine, then I wouldn't guess the hay is the culprit.
I'm wondering if the new calves brought something with them...
We lost all but the one heifer calf to pneumonia, it was the kind that did not have an elevated temp which is what threw me off. At first that was my thought on the calves, then doubted myself. the kids did suffer from some environmental toxin, so we changed all hay and water just in cast it was maybe a spray from the neighbors who are landscapers and use spray frequently, I don't know, most of them are coming around. They are getting B complex and Dex per our vet.
Could be anything, hopefully a vet can figure it out for you.
Sending prayers for a solution % recovery! So sorry you are going through this!
I'm sorry for all those losses.
We have been pretty lucky for 10 years, I attribute that to watching them closely and not letting things get away from us and of course all the research I do on this site and a couple others. This storm happened on a lock down weekend when we couldn't get a vet or supplies. The loss of the calves was brutal, thankful the goats are all ok and we still have Daphne. The little one was Boomer, I cried my eyes out when he died.
My vet advises injecting vitamins B1 and B12 every day, alternating shots.
Oh Im so sorry for your loss.
