Default cow with eye discharge

Got a cow that had a runny eye for about and day, came home from work today and now it is really green. Thought she might have just gotten dirt in it now I am getting a little worried. Anyone know what it might be? Pinkeye? She is eating really good.

It sure sounds like pink eye. It would hurt to doctor her for it. Just my thoughts

Default That's probably what it is..

that's the only eye problem we've ever had and I'd watch the rest of them closely. Treat it quick. Thought we had escaped this year without it and a month ago, caught two of them just beginning..nipped it in the bud pronto.

Funny thing though..the buckers here never get it..just the beef cows.

Had the same problem a couple months ago. It was pink eye. Didn't think it was and it was, Give a shot of penicillin and it will clear it up.

If you use LA200 the dosage for a full grown cow is going to be a lot like 25cc dont inject all the serem in one injection site do it in about 3 ,1 in each hip and in either neck!

I would give her LA200 (5cc per 100 lbs of body wt.) Under the skin in the neck no more than 10cc per injection site. If possible some sulfa boluses too, works for us in our feedlot
