“Put the calf on its chest, with its back legs pulled towards its ears”

Cody Creelman – a veterinary practitioner – believes that this is the best possible calf recovery position after birth.

“It’s called the ‘Calf Recovery Position’ but you can call it the ‘Cody Creelman’ if you’d like – save a calf” He outlined in a post on his Facebook page.

“Put the calf on its chest, with its back legs pulled towards it ears; this allows for maximal oxygen perfusion of both lugs and it opens the upper airway.”

Advice

In another post, he advised against lifting a calf upside down to drain fluid, stressing “this is not recommended; the fluid that comes out is from the stomach and too much pressure is put on the lungs.”

The original post has received in excess of 5,000 shares along with more than 5,000 likes and over 1,000 comments.
