Could be a secondary infection in the intestines. I would try Neomycin ( this is a bacterial antibiotic ) in his water for 5 days. Ask your vet how much to give for just 1 deer or if gives you the dosage on the bottle you can break it down. It has worked for me in the past. Good luck

Be sure to give him probiotics to get the rumen back to where it needs to be....this could be why he is still loose as well. good Luck!

Marquis....kills coccidia, usually with one treatment. Ask jason e on here about it..



$199.00 a tube, give him a hersheys kiss size dollop on some bread, retreat in a week if he isn't clear.

A 2-yr old buck on the farm where my Rosa now lives has very watery (almost completely liquid) diarrhea which started last night. Today he has been lying around all day, and refuses to eat anything, even his favorite treats.



The DVM came and gave him a drench dose of some horse-intended med that had a "sulfa" antibiotic in it. I can't remember the name of the med, but I am wondering what would you do if your otherwise healthy deer started having watery diarrhea (scours?) and refused to eat, and seemed lethargic and standing around just sort of looking depressed and staring into space?

The oral paste that the DVM used that is intended for horses was: Tribrissen 400 Oral Paste



Any experience with this? anyone? please?

I had so many problems with cossidiossis....an finailly found something that worked....yes corrid is good preventative ...but once they have it can be deadly.....anyhow...after losing quite a few fawns and even a few yearling deer I found a drug that works.....but of course it is expensive.......it is called Marquis.....I have heard people call it ponazuril......all I know is it works......it has been a while and I can not remember what the dose was that I gave I am certain it is on the instructions....but It was awesome stuff!! Hope this helps....

I had a bad strain of cossidiosis in 2 does this winter/ early spring. I will guarantee this cocktail to get rid of it, if it is cossidiosis. 3 cc of Mycotil and 10 cc penicillin every 3 days for a total of 3 doses. You must stay on top of this . 2 doses wont do it. Or at least it did not for me. I saw the deer go to pellets after the first dose in about 24 hours. I gave them a 2nd dose and I thought they were cured so I did not give the 3rd dose. It came back 10 days later. So I gave them the full cycle, that is 3cc mycotil and 10 cc penicillin every three days for a total of 3 doses. These deer now look just as good as the other does that never had it. It works. Ask Jack, he is on here a lot!

Where do you get the Mycotil?

Need help ASAP

I have printed this thread now and will give it to the geniuses on the farm. Thank you so much for your help guys.

Hope your deer are all doing great, and looking good after the "great winter coat shed." hehehe. I have deer hairs everywhere... Can't get 'em out of my fleece running shirt. Am so allergic it's not even funny... My big city friends think I'm crazy... But they don't know what it's like to be a deer mamma. Rosa has lived away from "home" now for 5 months but still won't take treats from anyone else than me, and chases everyone out of her pen. She's just so attached it's really heartbreaking to me. I honestly keep her in my constant prayers that she'll remain healthy on this farm where it seems that all of the deer, one by one have gotten sick during this time, except for her. I am so grateful to Dr. Shipley at UofI for sending me the vaccines he sends me. Please guys, let me know which vaccines you will be using this year, ok?

Thanks,

Lana
