I am bottle feeding a doe fawn she is out of triplets and was born on the 18th

she has been taking 4 to 5oz each feeding 4 times a day her last 2 feedings she would not take the bottle when I stimulated her to poop this is what I got. ANY IDEAS?

From what I can see the blood seems to be dark in color which tells me it`s not a hemorage but has been in the bowel for awhile. I`d have it tested for coccidia first to rule out that but in the mean time I would respond with an antibiotic and a sulfa drench till you can get to the bottom of the problem. Just my thoughts.

I agree with Mitch (as always).. Coccidia - Corid, Albon or there is a new drug called Baycox that is a "one dose" treatment for coccidia and works great. Good luck!

Ya, I'd think maybe theres some irritation of the intestinal track and thats where the blood came from . I'd watch her carfuly and maybe take that a sample to your vet to culture and see whats up . Just an opinon nothing more ...Good luck !

well its not coccidia. Last night I gave her 2cc of nutra-glo (shot it in her mouth with a eye dropper) then this morning I gave her 2cc vit B subQ and 1/2cc of baytril subQ and 1cc of nutra-glo. Then headed to the vet he ran a culture and it came back negative for coccidia. The vet gave me 960mg tablets of di-trim and told me to give her 1/2 a tab a day until it clears up. So when I got home I gave her the 1/2 tab and an hour later she ate about 1oz of milk.



I will keep updated

I wasn't thinking Coccidious as it usually takes a good month to show up in young critters and your fawn is younger than that . You could have coccidious in your herd but there too , you should have noticed something in your yearlings as it most present in younger animals . It could be a sort of irritation from an E coli bacteria , fusobacterium or even a type of pasteurellae. These types of bacteria can enter through the umbilical cord or be eaten or ingested in some way or another . I personally vaccinate all my fawns with Fusogard but as with vaccines everyone has their own programs . Fusobacteria can effect any and all the soft tissues in young animals and is more present when it's wet out and in heavy soil type areas . BUT ..That's just my opinion nothing more .

Thanks Wooden acres,



E coli bacteria is what the vet expected as well and the di-trim tabs seems to be the answer.



Thanks again

Roughcountry , you are more than welcome and I enjoy helping out if I can . You might want to start an oral vaccination for E coli if your having more fawns. There are quite a few good oral pastes out there that work very well , just use it right away . Feel free to e mail me any time . I don't know everything , but can get lucky once in awhile !! Just a thought !!

No there were not but this morning when I got up I saw that she was licking her buck leg up close to the butt so I took a better look and there were magetts (sp) I cleaned it out the best I could and went on to work when my wife got up she took her to the vet she is all clean and for the frist time since she got sick pooped and it had no blood in it (when she pooped it was on me) she is going to be in the house for a few days but it looks like she is going to be fine now that we have found the cause.



Thank again to every one.
