Today we take a look into some of the weird and wonderful cases of the 2015 spring.
Xray and dairy calf cast – This calf was found in the paddock with a broken leg. Radiographs identified that the calf had actually completely fractured his metatarsus requiring stabilisation via a cast. 3 weeks after this photo was taken, the cast was removed and the leg assessed to be healing well.
It’s not often at all that we see triplets! These 3 little guys were perfect replicates of their mother and slipped out pretty easily. Twins (and triplets on the very rare occasion) are often born earlier than expected because space in the uterus becomes limiting.
Dairy calf with 2 heads – This was a slightly different calving which resulted in a less than normal calf. Due to its deformity and in an attempt to prevent any suffering, the calf was euthanased. We don’t see these cases often, so we thought we’d share with you!
