We have a calf that is 1 1/2 days old. The mother will have nothing to do with it. However we have brought it in, milked the mother, and gave the calf about 5 oz colostrum. 3 hours later we tried again, only the calf would only take about 3 oz. Again waited 3 hours for another 3 oz. The calf seems very week, and will not stand or even try. The mother had not even cleaned it off when we found it, so was wet and cold. I gave it 2cc of Bio-mycin under the skin, as the vet recommended. Is there anything else I may try with this little one? Need help fast.
Thanks so much
