Hello this is Dr. Scheer and I am a farm animal vet. I'd like to help you with your cow but can you please tell me a little bit more about her? Is this a beef cow? Has she been dewormed? Has she lost weight? Any diarrhea? Is she out on pasture? With other cows? With a bull? Can you described where she is swollen in a little better detail? Is it just one side? is it between her jaw bones under her chin?
She may have broken her jaw or may have a heavy parasite load or Johne's disease. Please get back to me with that information so I can better help you figure out what has happened to her.
