A 6-year-old Holstein cow, which calved 36 hr earlier, is presented in sternal recumbency, profoundly depressed, dehydrated, afebrile (38.5°C,101.3°F), with toxic mucous membranes, an elevated heart rate of 96 beats per minute, and an increased respiratory rate (34 breaths per minute). The udder is soft but a pale, serum-like, secretion can be drawn from one quarter.
