This cow parturiated one month back. Two days before parturition sat down. Treated by a quack by calcium therapy and other supportives. Responded to treatment.But was unable to stand up at it's own. So the quack gave calcium therapy 5 times during those 20 days intervally. Then the owner called me. Continuously I treated the animal since last 10 days. I gave her calcium as well as fluids like Intalyte, D 10, DNS, inj Tribivet, Inj Mecovet xl, Inj Injectiphos, Inj Artizone s, Anabolite orally, and much more I found suitable. But the response is very very slow. Still the animal needs some help to stand up. Though after standing it remains in standing positions for long time. Note the joint swlling with synovial fluid. Plz suggest the diagnosis and treatment additions.
