Large Animal Vet: Dr. Loretta, Veterinarian replied 1 month ago

Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

It appears that your sweet Holly does have a minor digestive disturbance and the first thing I would try is Pepto Bismol at 1 tablespoon per 20 pounds of her weight every 6 hrs. If she is eating still, then also give her aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs. This temperature is not high for a doe but without knowing what may be causing Holly's discomfort, it would not hurt to cover her with Pencillin G available at the farm supply with the directions for use on the bottle. Give this for a couple days or until she is feeling better. If she is not eating, then give her Pedialyte every 6 hrs to be sure she remains hydrated while her body is attempting to fight off this discomfort. Unless she appears bloated, I would not use the Therabloat. If she is, also add in mineral oil to help neutralize the gas producing bacteria.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.

Sincerely, ***** *****
