He will still drink his bottles but won't eat hay and is getting SKINNY. I also noticed a small lump in his throat that my other two calves don't seem to have. Please, any useful suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Sounds like your calf may have pneumonia, better get with your vet, have you taken its temp?
