My three week old doe fawn has diarrhea that has progressively gotten worse. It started a few days ago with a runny orange color so I let her outside thinking that maybe some roughage would help. The next two feedings after that she has had watery green stool and this morning there was a bit of bright red blood in it. I just put her on Re-sorb, can you treat fawns with corrid? If so what dose is recommended?

Autumn, if we have 1 bottle fawn with a bloody stool, we treat all the bottle feds with Corid in their bottle... 3 cc's for 3 days, then 2 cc's for a day and 1 cc for a day.

C&E wildlife has a good product for deer scours, also what typically works the fastest for us is about 1cc per 15 pounds bodyweight of nuflor injected sub-q. I would recommend trying the nuflor once.

@hharyh, Great, thank you! We actually have NuFlor, would it be to much medication if I gave that her while treating with Corrid and Re-sorb?

Autumn, Just a note, you'll want to include fortified vitamin B along with the Corrid, as Corrid destroys thiamine in the system...This is really a small-ruminant Vet question, but I can tell you most small ruminant health pros are moving away from Corrid, to Sulmet or DiMethox...as is always the case, nothing is really labeled for deer, thus, dose rates could vary greatly...a task-specific probiotic is certainly indicated also. Wish you well!

We use 1/2cc of baytril in the milk one time a day for 3 days and it clears it right up. If you have the scours we like to add some pumpkin and good yogurt (Greek Yogurt) to the milk. I had some early fawns with scours and they all cleared up. How much you feeding your fawns and how many times a day are you feeding if your over feeding and they are getting the bloat that will lead to scours. We feed our fawns five times a day we have healthy fawns...

It seemed like she was clearing up, little to no blood and firmer stool. Then I started to switch her back to formula and things got worse, she's back to pooping water now. At the last feeding I put a teaspoon of fruit pectin in her bottle put it didn't seem to help right away but I'll keep trying.

Last year I used red cap and had no problems, this year we switched to milk replacer. I feed three times a day and feed 14oz to her. I also mix a good dollop of %100 pumpkin and Dannons plain yogurt. I will give them all some B complex after the next feeding.

After thinking it over I believe I will let her tummy rest for a day with out meds (except the corrid) and go from there.

I really appreciate your advice! I try to keep a notebook with different methods of treatment for various ailments and you all have been so helpful.

14oz 3 times a day!!!! Holy Crap no wonder she has the craps!!! That's way too much milk!!! Drugs are not helping this fawn!!! Cut back to like 5-6 oz!!! That will solve your problem!!! She is probably bloated like a balloon that is why she is scouring!!! What type of milk replacer are you using? Are you mixing it right??

Yes, with a milk replacer that is a very high amount. With Red cap this is acceptable because the amount of nutrients needed for intake require a greater volume. Fawns should be fed 10% of their body weight daily.

A quick update for this thread. Although they weren't bloated and only one fawn had scours I dropped them back to 10oz for a week (they were on UniMilk). I put the scouring fawn onto electrolytes and medicated scour formula and she firmed up, now she is back on their regular formula and doing well.The Corrid fixed their bloody stool problem, I added plain yogurt and pumpkin to their bottles during that period as well as some probiotics.

Thanks for the advice and opinions from everyone!

That is a lot of milk for a 3 week old. My experience is they quit eating when they are full.

I just got results back from a fawn that had watery/bloody stool and showed she had e coli. When my fawns get loose stool, I attack it with pumpkin, 3 cc sulmet, 1/2 packet of Unflavored powdered gelatine (in the canning isle of grocery store). Has worked every time with me. Put it in every bottle for 3 days. Make sure the eat the whole regiment every time. I mix it with 3 or 4 oz to make sure they get it all and then go back feed them the rest of their milk. I also switched to real goats milk last yr. it is costly but seems to keep the scours down to a minimum. Hope this helps
