Yesterday,(4/21/08) Dave went out to check a calf laying down while the rest of the herd was at the other end of the pasture.He thought it had pneumonia because he was wheezing and was down and he gave it L.A.200.It got up but was staggering and fell over never got up.So went out and it was dead.He was healthy (excpet the being dead part) his gums were purple.We are all baffled.Now another calf we suspect has it.Please help!!

I was going to say maybe the calf could have Haemopholis, or Polio?
