Dry cow and appetite depression

Published: November 20, 2014

Dear colleagues,

I have a dry cow pregnant for a second time which should give birth in about 30 days. It turns out that its appetite has reduced and it´s not eating the feed ration or the corn stover/silage as usual. Its physiological constants are normal. It is possible to feel "pasty" consistency to the rumen contents. Little ruminal movement. Faeces are few but mixed with a kind of grease, jelly-like but gelatinous content.

Could it be displaced abomasum, rumen acidosis or pneumonia?

Thanks!
