    White muscle disease in calves

    We have a suckler calf that has been diagnosed with vitamin E difficientcy. Vet prescribed selium injection,but it has made no difference.Calf unable to stand without help and cannot support itself and therefore does not suckle.It will take milk from bottle and eat straw. Anyone else had similar problem.?Vet not said if calf likely to survive.

    We lost a few until we supplemented all the cattle with a selenium/vit E supplement in the feed. It may be too late for this calf but try adding vitamin E powder to some milk. this is the one I use (for an equine) and they are very quick delivery.
