CountryDoc :

Welcome to JustAnswer, this is Dr. Christie.

CountryDoc :

Has the cow recently calved or is she pregnant?

CountryDoc :

Any discharge from the vulva itself? If so, what does it look like?

CountryDoc :

Is she eating and drinking normally?

Customer:

she had a calf last year and she seems to be about seven or eight months pregnant now.

Customer:

Discharge? Yes; she is discharging; It appears clear, but I'm not absolutely positive that it's clear.

Customer:

Food habit: She IS eating and drinking normally

Customer:

However, she looks sad, depressed, and her ears are drooping.

CountryDoc :

Is she bagging up in her udder?

CountryDoc :

Can you take her temperature rectally for me with either a digital or mercury thermometer? What is it?

Customer:

Yes, her udder is getting bigger, if that is what is you mean. I will try to take her temperature tomorrow.

Please do let me know what her temp is!

 

Do you know her breeding date at all?

 

I suspect if she is bagging up and her vulva is soft, flexible, and she is having a discharge, that she is likely preparing for calving!! :)
