My 4 month old Boer baby is sick. she is standing hunched, seems weak and her tongue is poking out and she has mucus coming out of her mouth. temp is 103 .5 and she is grunting slightly. do you think its pneumonia?
I would get C&D Antitoxin into her. I would also get a shot of Banamine into her. You could even do some activated charcoal in case it is poisoning. Probios and B Complex wouldn't hurt. Can you listen to her lungs?
You think? It never occurred to me that something could be in her throat, my first thought was Pneumonia with all the wet weather and temperature fluctuations. I guess I will keep an eye on her and see if she continues to improve. Thanks so much for the help!
A lot of times when the have something in their throat, they won't go drink themselves. That is choke. Left too long they will bloat. Banamine relaxes the throat and calms their fear so that they can deal with it.
Good job getting it cleared out for her.
Thank you. She came and jumped into bed with me at 3am which of course startled me :laugh: & she seems brighter this morning, saw her chewing her cud and she drank some water out of her bucket but it seemed to run back out of her mouth. So I guess Iwill have to take another look and maybe call the vet.
Definitely! I think it was Pneumonia. I just didn't like the way she looked, and she is known to stand out in the rain, so I gave her some antibiotics and Bam! Took a couple days but she slowly improved and now she looks good as new..
