Convenient answers to your large animal veterinary questions


When you’re dealing with a large animal, veterinary care isn’t a simple affair. Unlike a small pet, you can’t just bring a horse or a cow and wait in the emergency room. This means that you’ll need to wait for a mobile veterinarian to make a house call. To make things worse, sometimes animal health problems can be minor and don't really merit the time or expense of home veterinary services.


If you have large animal veterinary questions, the Experts on JustAnswer are available at any time to help you make sense of your animal’s symptoms. They'll help you choose the best course of action in your situation, possibly saving yourself that expensive vet’s visit, and you approve payment to your Expert only when you're completely satisfied.

What Customers are Saying:

The qualified Experts on JustAnswer regularly respond to questions like:


  • How common is it in younger calves with light noses to get sunburned vs actually eating poisonous plants that would affect her nose while out in the sun?
  • My 60 lb. male cast pygmy has a stifle injury. He puts weight on it but holds it up sometimes. The vet gave me Banamine for him? Does that sound right?
  • How much oxytocin can be given to my beef cow to induce labor?
  • My mini donkey has loose stools and some hair has gone missing on her back end on rump and tail. What's wrong with her?

To give you the best advice, the Expert will need some information. You should be ready to answer questions such as:
