Question Land o Lakes Does Match ? - 🙏PLEASE Advise 🙏

I have a 4 - 5 week old orphaned fawn who i am caring for. The people who brought her to me had her on Land O Lakes Does Match. Please let me know if this is ok or if I should change her diet.

She has been taking three 12 oz bottles a day and is now drinking water and nibbling grass. Is this the right amount ?

Her stool looks like mashed together pellets but not runny. She has been alert and healthy looking. However the past 24 hours I notice she has been refusing bottle more often and although nothing else has changed thus far i want to be one step ahead just in case

I do not currently know have weight but will get a scale this evening and find out.

If someone can tell me of the diet is good and if there is a feeding chart you can share ?

What else should I be doing ?

Also...if anyone is available to help me via phone call i would be most grateful!!!

Sounds like she is doing good. Make sure she has access to fresh dirt aswell

I hope so, but am concerned she has refused the bottle several times. I have noticed she has been eating dirt and small gravel from creek .
