  Hartshorne, OK
If she is looking like she is going down hill, or if her hair is fluffy 1/2 cc draxxin is what I use very strong but very good.

Ok hate to say things like this cause it might not work for you. I had a fawn get hung in the fence 4 days ago. I checked pens that morning went to town and came home to a hurt deer. It couldn't pick it's head up for 2 days third day little better and today standing. The only thing I did that your not is every other day 1/2 cc draxxin. It is very good stuff. Hope that helps. This afternoon we had to calm it down to eat.

If foam is coming from her mouth, it is possible that she might have pneumonia or some other respiratory issue. I would give the Draxxin, and also would give her a shot of Thiamine (just in case it is white muscle disease).

Perhaps send an email to asking for his advice, or contact Scott Heinrich via PM. Both are highly competent and great people.

Could it be browsing on bad weeds?

More than likely the wound came from one of the doe's. Sometimes they'll stomp on them if somethings wrong. I had this happen with a newborn too.....went in, it was lethargic and had been kicked. If she couldn't get on her feet to nurse within the first few hours or couldn't suckle properly, mom probably thought it wasn't a viable, I know.
