Higher urea presence in food can lead to many problems and even death in some cases. If your cattle start exhibiting any of the following symptoms, try looking for a vet specialized in farm animals that can help you:
- Become anxious
- Overly salivate
- Lose coordination
- Grind teeth
- Breathe quickly
- Their face muscles twitch
- Urinate excessively
- Cannot walk normally
- Feel weak and in pain
Cows are creatures of habit, and they are intelligent animals not much different from dogs or cats. So, you should be able to notice if they start behaving differently in any way.
