Lily had barely any udder development before she delivered her twins a week early, so I didn't think low calcium was an issue. I did give her an oral calcium before I left for Florida, but I will stop at TSC to get the oral CMPK. How much should I give her, since it is a cow product? I wasn't even thinking of this. Thanks for the thought! The vet was able to milk out an ounce of colostrum for her babies, but that was it. I am giving her alfalfa pellets and alfalfa/clover/grass hay, but she is not interested in hay very much. As an update on her: Just last night, I was seriously considering having her put down as I was not seeing progress at all. It has been challenging to find time during the day to leave work to get a third round of therapy done. (Other than the twice during barn chores) Then this morning, when I was finished with her therapy, I removed the bales out from under her and loosend the ropes on the pulleys. She supported herself for a full two minutes while she ate her grain mix. So maybe there is hope. If CMPK will help her muscles do what they are supposed to, I am praying that all my efforts are not in vain for my friend.
