Well even old guys can have something new happen when raising fawns.* Started today with weakness.* Think it had too much sun as it didn't come out of the sun and go to the barn.* Went from weakness to flat on the ground in shed.* Bottle fed a little.* Now it is up but pushes it's head to the wire and chews on it all the time.* Is this just a symptom of heat exhaustion and pain or something else??* Ideas??


I'm going to give it Banimine but nothing else.* It is not bloated and will eat.


Any thought on what else*I should do??


Thanks guys.


Jack

Fluids never hurt. A shot of B-12 is where you may start.* Could be listeria... Best of luck

Thanks Josh I was also thinking Listeria but it came on in hours.* She was fine at the 6AM feeding and ate well.* B12 is a good idea and I will give that and some fluids and Banimine.* I knew all I had to do was ask and someone would add to my thinking.* Thanks.


I'll tell you guys how she is tomorrow.* I think she will make it.

SHE MADE IT AND IS FINE* I gave the banimine and b12 at 8:45 and within a half an hour she was back to normal.* 11 PM we took out the night bottle feeding and she was right back to normal pushing to get at the bottle.* We only gave 8 oz to her.* She did just have heat stroke so file that down in your books for symptoms I know I have.


Thanks.

Jack I would do another B-12 shot just to be safe. It cannot hurt. Great News!
