Hi -- your message is a statement and not a question, so I'm not sure what you are asking. We obviously can't and shouldn't diagnose disease in animals or make treatment recommendations. You should contact the initial veterinarian and tell him/her what you shared here-- they will want to know that.

As an orphan, this calf may have not gotten enough colostrum and is without passive immunity against diseases. Also, it could be a persistently-infected BVD calf. Your veterinarian will be able to investigate both these possibilities and advise you accordingly. Please pursue this case aggressively for the calf's sake and long-term implications. Good luck!
