I guess you should wait for the response of the medicine that vet's prescribed to your pet. It really looks different when you see your pet is sick and feeding them a medicine to look. All you need is to wait until he feels that he can stand and walk.

I wouldn't be so quick to put all your eggs in one basket. Besides, you never even posted the symptoms of the calf, just all the meds (probably most of them unnecessary) given and nothing else. Calves and cattle don't get polio, btw, that's something humans get. You need to either see the vet or remember to ask questions first before assuming the calf's condition. Post the symptoms then maybe we can actually help you. We can't help you if you think you already know what the disease is...even if it's not what it is.
