Retained Membranes

Do not wait for several days before treating dirty cows with hanging membranes or smelly rear ends.

Dr Dettloff recommends taking immediate action if there are membranes hanging 24 hours after calving. If you get onto it right away, often a single treatment is enough to prompt clean passage of any remaining after-birth. Timely action helps to avoid lengthy treatments that debilitate the cow and runs the risk of metritis and failure to cycle.

Use the protocol of Fresh Cow boluses, First Step tincture and Aloe Vera  under Practical Tips tab.
