I have a 5 week old brahman bull calf named Boudreaux. He came to me with a condition called joint ill because his owner did not have enough sense to dip his umbilical cord when he was taken from his mother The poor little guy has had huge swollen, sore joints as long as I have had him. Three of them have healed nicely with baytril treatment but one, his back left hock (ankle) is still huge so I have started him over again on his second round of antibiotics and ten asprin in his bottle per day to keep him comfy. He plays some now and is soooo cute but for the longest time it was difficult for him to even get up. His appetite has always been good and he is very allert and a happy little guy. I just wish he would get over this all together. It really steams my cookies to think that something so simple as treating his cord could have prevented all this horrible episode. People are so thoughtless and cruel!
