Well she is pooping so it cant be blockage. and wonder if her belly looks big because she is getting so scrauny and weak. i just wormed 3 weeks ago. just going out to reworm her again and hit her with draxxin. any other opinions? Anybody?

chris, I've got a three month old doe fawn that got very sick, finally got her straightened out. Eating, pooping good. BUT her belly is still looking somewhat bloated. I know it isn't worms or coccicidia because I killed all of them within 100 yards of her When I pick her up the belly is taunt, but so far no ill effects, been this way for at least three weeks...

Yes Ivomec Plus or even hit her with Valbazen but be sure to hit her hard with probiotics in her food and water!
