Question
calf is having hard time urinating and bm

Answer
Jeanie,

That's not much information to go on!

How old is the calf?  Bottle calf or on a cow?  Symptoms?  Does she strain and act like it's painful?  Urinating frequently?   How long has it been going on?  Is she eating anything or just nursing?

If you'll give me more information I'll give you some suggestions.

I can answer most types of cattle questions, primarily beef types. Genetics, breeding, basic care, herd health and management, and showing. I'm knowledgeable in forages and feeding. Non emergency health and soundness questions. I am not a veterinary, and can't answer critical care questions. Call your local large animal vet for that service.
