Same four year old buck that had EHD six weeks ago. He's been coughing pretty bad since, been on 3cc Draxxin SQ every three days for three weeks, , on 2cc Baytril SQ every day for last week(five days). Coughing/hacking is much improved...



Today I saw him start coughing, then moving forward at a fast walk coughing, head to the ground. He was vomiting up stomach bile, prolly a pint or more of it!! He is still losing weight also.



Any suggestions, help????

I'm thinking a rumen transfer from a healthy deer to this buck would probably help also, if the probios/shock effect treatment dosen't show improvement.



We did a successful rumen transfer on a colicky fawn several years ago, almost instant relief from colic.

I got more Probios in him early today, and one tube of C&E Deer Paste this afternoon. I just saw him vomit up 1/2 cup of greenish bile, coughing as he did it.



Anybody ever seen this???

The green bile may be a sign of acute acidosis. I agree you need a vets input but in the meantime free choice baking soda can't hurt and if you are giving more shots I would give thiamine also.

mostly mouth, some nose. I think it originates in his stomach, that much stuff coming up from his lungs is not probable....



I'd say like a person vomiting and some sprays out the nose also. Nasty.

is he eating or drinking? If you see this after he eats or drinks its

possible he could be choked. He could have something lodged in his esophagus.

wouldn't an esophageal blockage cause the "vomit" to look undigested, raw like it went down???

food may be chewed up fine but will not have the same smell as fluid from the rumen. May come up through the mouth or from the nose.
