    Hi everybody,

    Dr Pol is a veteranarian that has a reality TV program in Michigan where he is filmed working on various animals.

    One episode caught my attention the other day on TV. He had a cow that could not stand up from fatigue due to lack of calcium and phosphorus after being used for milking.

    Kind of interesting.

    Wow, they're even treating the cows better than us. How did he know to give calcium/phosophorous, and not just that the heffer needed some CBT?

    They didn't say, but it seemed like standard procedure. The cow was so weak it couldn't stand up.

    On another note....Haven't see Dr Pol prescribe anti-depressants or CBT yet!
