Hello! I apologize for your wait and I'm sorry to hear your calf is not feeling well. Is she continuing to eat and drink well? Is she on a milk replacer or grain formulated for calves? It is not uncommon for young orphaned calves to have trouble with parasites and develop diarrhea. I do not know your region or your farm and have not examined the calf, so I cannot recommend a specific treatment for you. However, your county agricultural extension office should have resources to help you. I am happy to help you get in contact with them and help you find a veterinarian in your area.
