No discharge from the eyes or nose and she isn;t runnig a fever. She is taking the bottle off and on. At 9:30am she took it at 3:30pm she didn't but then I fed her again at 6:30pm and she ate. She does stand and walk just not well and sometimes she falls down. Also we gave her a white muscle shot today and when she was born
Ok, thanks. I was feeding her every 6 hours but now I am feeding her evey 4 hours a little less since she wasn't eating all the time. Is every 4 hours to often for the oil?
ok I just wanted to make sure I can't over dose her on it?
Ok well I guess we will hope for the best until I can call the vet in the morning! Thanks for the tips I will keep watching her.
I took her to th vet this morning. They weren't sure what was wrong with her really. But they gave her Baytill 100 BOV 250, Buscopan Inj, Dexamethasone, and vitamin B complex. They didn't tell me if I need to giver any follow up of anything though? She does seem to be doing a little better, I think. On the vitamin B when should you give that, incase this ever happens again?
I have another problem. The lamb seemed to be a little better she finally started eating and moving a little more. Now she is not getting up again and she is holding her back leg up. The vet felt her and thought everything felt good?
The leg doesn't feel warm. I only have flavored yogurts, but I do have some probiotic paste would that do the same thing? Also the more we watch her she looks constipated. She walks all hunched up and looks like she is straining trying to poop. Should I put less formula and more water in her bottle would that help? Also should I still do the vegtable oil?
