Hi, my name is***** am certainly help you with your cow. I have a few questions to better help you though, how many are in the herd? Is she drinking? Would you be able to take her temperature? When was she last dewormed? Is she up to date on vaccinations?

Also, what is her purpose? Food or pet? Thank you!

Pet

So she needs a veterinarian to come out and do some testing, they can do urine and blood testing. A few things that could be going on, their stomachs can become displaced, they can be eating the wrong diet and could have some metabolic problems going on.

I am worried that she could be very sick since she is not wanting to eat.

Ask Your Own Veterinary Question

Diarrhea can signify parasites or metabolic diseases as well.

Ask Your Own Veterinary Question

I would withhold any grain from her as well and offer just fresh good quality hay instead.

Ask Your Own Veterinary Question

Unfortunately, her symptoms do not point to a very specific disease and there could be several things going on.

She seems to be eating hay just fine did get some alfalfa she ate a little and she does eat a little feed but thats about it

Ok, is she eating less than normal? I would only give her hay and no alfalfa either Alfalfa is too rich in protein for a cow not feeling well. I would also not give her any feed.
