Update on Premature calf

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

Hello here is an update on "Manna". As i told you a while ago she got ran over by my dad, and then she got better for a wile. A week after she got hit she started staggering like a drunk or dizzy person and fell down somtimes. I took her to the vet and the vet said she has centeral nerve damage.It was kinda like her inner ear being off. The vet said she probly won't get better, and suggested I put her down. I told her I wanted to wait to see if there was any chance of her geting better, she dosen't seem to be suffering or I would have put her down. Does any one have any suggestions?? Are there any natural or regular treatments that mite help her?? She seems to still enjoy being alive somwhat. Any comments would be appreaciated.

Ginger (the herb) strengthens the inner ear. You can buy fresh ginger at the grocery or get it in capsules. Also, the homeopathic remedy phosphorus is good for vertigo, which if she has an inner ear imbalance she would experience. Good luck.

had a rabbit get wry neck once, took him to the vet tried to cure him finaly when his head was to twisted to eat we put him to sleep. Had a old cat stop eating this summer she would drink water but not eat wouldnt give up gave her baby food in a sringe and after 3 days she started to eat and she is still fine, My point? As long as they can drink and eat ok keep trying if you want to if there strong they might pull through [love, and good food maybe vitamens and good water can do miricles ]But be prepared for the end and be strong enough to do it if the animal wont eat or drink [can go with out food a long time but not water]sometimes one has to go to allow another a place later on.Iadmire your courage in trying to save her, good luck .
