I have a one week old doe fawn, she was 1.5 lbs when born. Took her and her brother to the house. Just the other day i was feeding her and she just collapsed went totally limp.She has done it twice now and everytime she is eating. Has anyone ever had this happen to them and if so what do you do.

I would be worried about a problem with the heart, maybe you should take her to a veterinarian so they can listen to her heart.

I've actually had two fawns that would do this when taking a bottle. First time it happened I thought the fawn was dead. Just a few seconds it regained it feet and resumed feeding. Just take the nipple away from her several times as your feeding it. Ought to stop the "fainting".

I had a fawn do this last year. But she never came too, just stone dead. My guess is it was a weak heart as or something as jerrilee mentioned.

Dear former please open the avenues of the success and tramp for the citizens. The chance of the terrific calculation and essays edit is edited for the formation for the parts for the field. It is penned for the struggle for the signing of the clues for the farmers in the farming field.

I had a buck fawn that did the same thing. He would faint and regain consciousness after about twenty seconds. After a few weeks, he stopped doing it. Just make sure to hold the fawn so she doe not hit her head and keep her head up while she is unconscious.
