Hi Candy:

It seems that VetFor You is currently unavailable, and I wanted to be sure that you received an answer to your question. Unfortunately, once urinary blockage starts, (which is normally due to urinary bladder stones) it’s an ongoing battle that usually ends up with poor results. I would recommend that you consider a slaughter of the steer. This will not only save you a lot of headache and possible expense, but it will save the steer from enduring the unnecessary pain and suffering as well.

Trust I’ve helped, but please don’t hesitate to ask, should you have any further questions.

Dan C., DVM.
