Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

How much blood did you see (ie spoonful, cupful, etc)?

Has this calf had diarrhea or black stool?

Any chance the bother has injured it? Any other signs suggesting a kick or crush?

Are his inner eyelids pink or pale/white?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?
