Question Bottle fed with diarrhea

I have a bottle fed fawn, who is completely weaned now. She has had diarrhea for probably 2-3 months off and on. It ranges from green - dark brown/black.

I've given her SMZ, tablets and liquid. Corrid in water. Probiotics and fawn paste. And just had her on Aueromycin in the feed for 3 days. Nothing seems to be helping.

The SMZ helped at first as well as the corrid, it would stop for a couple days to a week, but then it starts again.

She is still active, alert and eating well.

Any ideas? I'm debating sedating her to clean her up and give her IM antibiotics and a vaccine booster.

I would worm her with valbazen and also give her a SQ shot of Ivermictin. I would then worm her again in 10 to 12 days. I think she has worms.

We sedated her and cleaned her up. Gave her Ivomec, Baytril, B complex.

We did a fecal analysis and only thing that came up was "rare" roundworm eggs. We also tested for e.coli, coccidiosis, and other bacterial issues. All negative.

I gave her a vaccine booster a few days back, but she is still very skinny. She's very happy and alert and loves to eat.

Still unsure of what's wrong.

Did you reworm in ten days. None of the wormers will kill stage 1 & 2 so in 12 days they have worms again. Does she still have diarrhea? I have found the two wormers work well together. When mine have a problem like that I will use Micotil SQ on them twice in 48 hours. Hard drug to get cause if you inject yourself it might kill you so most Vets won't give it out.

We didn't deworm her again since all fecals came back negative for any worm eggs. I will talk to my vet and see if we can get the Micotil SQ.
Thanks
