    Cow foaming at the mouth

    Literally...

    I haven't seen the cow, but my uncle came over earlier and said that we have a cow that's foaming at the mouth in the pasture. Don't know what's wrong with it and can't catch it because it's wild (they all are).

    I' kinda scared to go out in the pasture now...

    Maybe it's nothing more than bloat combined with it trying to cough up and chew it's cud, giving it a foaming look....

    sometimes when my horses are eating their hay they get foamy at the mouth...I think there are also some plants/weeds that can cause excess saliva which might make the cow look like its foaming at the mouth.

    Could be foot and mouth. Whatever it is, I'd say it would be a very good idea to catch the cow and make sure it's nothing serious.

    I lost two yearling calves last year after the first big frost. Both had foamed at the mouth and seemed a little nuts. I had not put out the High Mag mineral/salt. Their digestive system had not adjusted after the frost.
    The truth may kill you but at least you will not die with a lie in your mouth.

    I think they may try and catch the cow... but my uncles words were that it was eating ok, so it must be ok... Me, I'm not too sure... I'm kinda scared of cows anyway...

    I hope my horses stay away from the cows so I can catch them without having a heart attack over it...

    When I was milking we'd have cows in the parlor all the time dripping foam from their mouth, nothing was ever wrong with them.

    If you can catch the cow (try herding it into a small pen if you have one) though it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a vet check it out.
    If you're gonna be stupid you better be tough.

    Haven't heard anything on it today... If something is actually wrong with it, my uncles will probably shoot it... if not, then it'll just stay in the pasture most likely...
