EMERGENCY vibes needed...

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
My brother has been bottle feeding a calf who is now around a year old-they formed a very close bond so much so that he comes to him everytime he calls him or steps into the field and is within his sight he stepped into the field the other day to bottle feed a different calf when he tried to mate the very young calf(who is around 6 weeks old) Justin(my brother) after he got him off--the older calf tried to mate my brother The calf weighs around 400lbs now when he tried to do that he knocked my brother down and trampled him stepped on his back and shoulder blades- My brother who is 18 now WILL not go to the Drs he is having trouble breathing and complaining of severe pain. Can I get some that my brother will go to the ER and be ok...we are very worried about him right now!

Sounds like he could have a collapsed lung. He does need to be seen ASAP.

Also, the "calf" (aka as a BULL) needs to be castrated or sold.

Sounds like broken ribs that may have punctured a lung or something. He needs to go to the ER now!

personally, i'd call an ambulance. once the paramedics get there, you can explain what happened & perhaps they can convince him!
can ambulances only be called for emergencies? seems to me if he has labored breathing, it's an emergency, tho...

I would think that being tromped by a bull/calf and having severe pain and trouble breathing would constitute an emergency, IMHO.

I will be praying that he gets some sense (sorry, but...) and goes to the hospital. If he's embarrassed about what happened, all he has to tell them is that he got tromped by a 400 lb. calf at feeding time. He really needs to go, and go asap!

They know that theyve been doing cattle for a long time and I got it wrong it is a female not a bull they do castrate all their males...I wrote this post around 9 this morning after 7 days in a row of third shift with no sleep!

--Ive been with him all day and he is doing somewhat better but still not great and still refusing to go to the ER as long as he is 18 he can now decide for himself if he needs to be seen and can deny help as long as he signs a waiver.

Why are men so stubborn when it comes to going to a doctor or ER??

He may get mad at you if you take it into your own hands and call an ambulance, but he'll get over it. I really think he needs to go ASAP!

I hope he'll be okay!

I agree, call an ambulance. Explain to them before had that you don't think it's life threatening but he is having trouble breathing and refuses to go to the hospital. It's there job to come and check it out and maybe if a medical professional says it's time to go and get x-rays, he'll go. It could be he's just really bruised up but it is possible that he has a cracked or broken rib and that needs attention asap.

Men are so hard headed sometimes! Many going out to him and you! Let us know what happens.

Brandi, I just found this -- oh, I hope your brother has come to his senses. I can't imagine why he won't see reason... aside from being 18, which I guess explains a lot.

Y'know, I'm trying to imagine how he could be having trouble breathing and yet not be injured in a manner that requires medical attention... and I just can't. I sure hope someone has just plain dragged him into the ER.
