I need advice. I have a mature doe that has had scours for the past three weeks. At week two we gave her 1cc of Draxin followed 3 days later by another 1 cc of Draxin. With no change the following week we gave her 1cc of Cydectin. We also started the pen on Safegard for 3 days. We will begin another 3 days of Safeguard tomorrow. There is still no change in the scours. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks for the reply. Do you have to dart and give the pro-biotice orally. If so how do you make sure it goes into the rumen and not into the lungs.

Do you have a water tub?....You can use water soluble.

Or on bread like a sandwich.

She's not so tame that we can feed by hand. Most likely we will have to knock her down to administer anything orally.

If your deer will not eat tossed treats....Just put the powder on their feed it will not hurt the others.

Yes we do have a water trough in the pen. Any advice on water soluable Pro-Biotic. Where to get it and how much do you mix per gallon?

I agree I would get a sample tested to rule out coccidia.....better to be safe than sorry....plus they will be able to tell you pretty much what the problem is if there is a problem. Good Luck!!
