Ok first off I want to say that I don't have CMPK I have looked around, called the vet, no one has it around me. I have access to calcium gluconate 23% and dextrose 50% and that is about it. I ordered some MFO and Ammino Acid solution this morning so I am hoping it will be here by tomorrow maybe. Jeffers is fast. But I have to get from now till then. Ok here is the situation. About 5 days ago Maria stopped eating her grain. And then she was slowing down eating her hay. She looked depressed and stood by the back wall. The only thing she would eat was grass in the pasture. Her ligaments were still there and she had no milk so I didn't think she was going to kid. So I figured it was the start of hypocalceimia. So I drenched her with 8 oz. of calcium glconat 23% and I also gave her about 30cc's of dextrose orally. She seemed to come around after that so I stopped doing it. (Probably shouldn't have.) She started chowing down on her hay and I would give her a small handful of grain about 3 times a day. So what I did to try to keep her calcium levels up after I gave her the gluconat was Sue Reith's hoemade CMPK since I can't seem to find the real stuff here. I gave her that 2 times a day. I have also been giving her karo water daily just in case she was going to start with ketosis from not eating well before. Well Sunday she started not wanting her grain again. She seemed ok other than that but I went ahead and gave her another 8 oz. orally of Calcium Gluconat 3%. I also did the dextrose again too. She hasn't wanted grain since Sunday and today she was not wanting her hay so much either. Laura and I went to get hay this morning and when we got back she was shaking a little bit. I took her temperature and Vi's to compare. Vi's was 102.1 and Maria's was 101.6. So I have gone ahead and given her 36cc of Calcium Gluconate sub-Q. Is this what I should be doing? Do I need to do anything else. She almost sounds like she has a little bit of a rattle in her chest and everyonce in while she coughs. I am kind of at a loss as to how much of what to give her and for how long. Can you help me?
