Yesterday our vets removed the dead calf from Irma. She carried her fullgrown female baby for more then a year. The birth of Tonya and sucking Irma's nipples have started the birth process. Irma tried for more then a day to deliver the calf and she was exhausted. So we decided to do a surgery and to remove the dead calf. During the surgery under local anasthesia Irma was standing on her feet all time. The vets opened her birth channel from the backside, just a few centimeters under her anus. They made an incision from ca. 15 cm. and tried to pull the dead calf out. Unfortunately without succes. So the team decided to devide the calf in pieces. Smaller pieces have been removed throuh this hole and the bigger pieces were pushed through her birth channel. Finally, after 12 hours work with a marvelous team, they managed the remove all pieces and could close the wound. Today Irma was doing well. She is receivig pain relief and the wound has been flushed several times.
This was the second time our vets did such a surgery. Years ago (in 1993) they used this method to remove a dead calf from Raja (now in Mallorca).
