Bloated Belly

Buck fawn born this spring has bloated belly with loose stool. Was on neomyacin for 6 days. Is now on probiotics for the last 5 days. Still has same issue. Is there anything else I should do for him? Or give him more time?

I am new and just getting into deer farming but for bloat problems with goats you can give them baking soda.

10cc C&D antitoxin, 2cc pen v, and 2cc vitamin b complex. You can give mineral oil orally by syringe, once every 12 hours, or drench with fawn bloat baking soda solution. I sometimes put a little dish of baking soda in fawn box. If fawn has not taken in fluids, give electrolyte solution orally. Meds don't usually help if the fawn is dehydrated. DO NOT give milk if the fawn is bloated.

I just re-read your post..does the fawn have a wobbly gate?(does it cross it's legs when walking or running a few steps) Does he have dirt around his mouth? Fever? Give 500mg thiamine also....
