Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.
Are they on pasture?
Any diet change as of late?
Any fever?
Any changes to the calf's eye itself?
Can you post your photos for me to see? If you can do so and post them online, I am happy to have a look (since it will let me see what you are seeing). To post them, you can either use the wee paper clip on the tool bar. Or if you cannot see that on your phone/computer, then you can post them on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr etc) and paste the web address here for me to have a peek.
