Both the esophageal feeding probe and the nasogastric tube must be inserted carefully and properly, to decrease risk of injuring or drowning the calf.
You can use an esophageal feeding probe (a metal or stiff plastic tube that goes down the calf's throat and partway down the esophagus--about 16 inches--and is attached to a container or bag that holds the fluid you wish to give him), or you can use a smaller diameter long flexible nasogastric tube that goes into the nostril and then clear down into the stomach.
