Dr. John Dick presents this two-day, 10-hour “hands on” course on the examination of the sick cow. The goal is to allow participants to more quickly and accurately identify, diagnose and treat sick cows. The focus of the course will be teaching practical skills. Principles are reinforced in a barn session where participants work directly on dairy cows.

The course will cover:

  • A systematic approach to examination of the sick cow
  • Diagnosis of some common diseases such as mastitis, ketosis, displaced abomasum, down cows, and metritis
  • Guidelines on when to call for veterinary assistance
  • Treatment principles for common disease conditions
  • Treatment techniques:
    • Blood collection
    • IV administration
    • Stomach tubing
    • Drenching and Bolusing

A course reference binder will be provided and will include 2 classroom and 1 barn session over 2 days.
