got a sick 150# calf. Gave him a shot of Liquamycin LA-200 last night. He has white mucus around his nostrils so probably pneumonia. What are you guys treating with?. W

If it is pneumonia I would use Resflor or Nuflor.

Ive heard that draxi n is good stuff. I would ditch the la200 and go with penicillin. Its much stronger and you will give a lot smaller dosage

I switched to Nuflor on anything lighter than 300 LBS here two years ago. I have had good luck with it.

LA 200 and Penicillin you can buy today do not seem to effect the lung bugs like they once did. So it is time to break out the "newer" stuff.

I too use Nuflor over LA200. Used to use LA200 all the times. Sometimes it worked sometimes it didn't. Other times the animal would improve then go backwards. I got some Nuflor and that took care of things. Only downside is you need a prescription...

5cc of Nuflor IM. 2cc of Draxxin SQ.

5 cc of vitamin B IM. 3cc of Banamine IM. Give him a whole bottle of gatorade with a stomach tube. pray.
or 3cc Nuflor IM per 100 lb body weight. and 1cc of Draxxin SQ per 110 pound body weight.
This combination gives me excellent results.

I have had some luck with Nuflor or Gentosin used along with Banamine or Flunixamine, but I have had better luck using hydrated lime/pickling lime. This will raise the PH in his body quickly killing most bad bacteria and any virus if it's not too far along already. Just mix a half teaspoon in a quart of water or milk, if the calf is in pretty bad shape add some electrolites, and bottle or tube feed this to him once a day for a few days or until he gets noticably better. NOTE, don't tube him if you don't absolutly have to, this makes their throat sore and can compound his problems. You can use hydrated lime alongside any medicine you want to use with no ill effects. Good luck!
