Question Fallow Deer Won't Eat. Need Help !


This is my first post in the forum. I have a Fallow Deer adult buck with me since about an year that I keep in my home. About a day ago, we let him out of the pen and accidently he chewed up a lot of bread after which he has not been eating anything amd being very lazy. His stomach is bloated and on first day we noticed that he was throwing up. He had very loose droppings. I called a vet to check him up and he gave him a couple of injections, one steroid and one antibiotic. The vet gave him the same injections last night as well. He is much more active but still not eating anything at all. He is drinking a lot of water and we are adding glucose to his water which he is drinking. Also we have been giving Carminative mixture. He is mostly standing now and not sitting down and his second day without food. I am new to deer keeping and this is my first time experiencing such a problem. Any advices please ? Is the vet missing something or he is on the right track ? The loose motionshave stopped but he is not eating anything at all. Please help, I am extremely worried.
