Head dysfunctions in newborn calves :
There is no medical treatment for newborn calves with sucking difficulties. Unfortunatelly, many calves die in dairy or beef cattles because they can’t be fed.

The gentle application of osteopathic treatment can often bring about a significant improvement. I will share with you my way to use palpation to examine the calf and confirm what areas need to be treated, and how to do it.
