Fawn with diarrhea

We are bottle feeding 3 buck fawns currently and we are having issues with diarrhea. We have been using red top milk and yesterday added goats milk for calories. These fawns are almost 2 weeks old.
Buck 1 has had it for ~5 days. Initially there was a small amount of blood in the stool and he was treated with 3 days of Penicillin. Now, he is having watery yellow stool. (X2days). He is active. Eating his full bottle. And other than diarrhea doesn’t appear sick. Started adding about a tablespoon of yogurt to every bottle yesterday. Added .5 cc baytril to bottle yesterday.
Buck 2 started his diarrhea yesterday. (Yellow and watery, no blood.) We are doing everything the same as buck 1. However buck 2 has only eaten half of his bottles since last night. He is still active, but appears he could be bloated.
Buck 3 has had no interventions. And had a small amount of diarrhea this morning.
Every fawn has been getting corrid in their bottles since yesterday morning.
What are y’alls thoughts?

cut down on the amount you are feeding at each time and make sure they have lots of black dirt to eat

How much pumpkin do you giving them? I have one that is loose right now as well. I bought some canned pumpkin, just need to know how much to give? I am assuming that you mix it in with their bottle of milk?

Ok so my 7 day old Fawn is eating 6oz three times a day of redcap milk with a half a cup of ultra 24 mixed in a gallon of milk. She has had semi runny poo that is yellow and looks like runny snot. Now this afternoon on her second feeding of the day I added a teaspoon of pumpkin to her bottle. At her last feeding of the day it seemed like her poo was runnier. She took her last bottle with pumpkin no problem. My question is oh long does it take to see if pumpkin is gonna work. I am gonna give pumpkin in her morning bottle as well. If there is no change by tomorrow second feeding I feel like I need to be agressaive and try something different.

I actually use a 3cc ssyringe without a needle and give them 3cc orally. After a few times of doing it most figure out they like the taste. I was told you can give it to them every feeding but I normally only do it once or twice per day. I feed 4 times per day. I also give it after they finish there bottle.
I think the fawn paste would really help you. I buy mine from whitetail sales.

Well after giving pumpkin in two of the three bottle feedings yesterday. I am glad to say that this mornings feeding went well and it looked like she is pretty firmed up already. I went ahead and gave her pumpkin with her bottle this morning so we will see how she is at 3:30pm feeding today. If she is good and firm, I'm assuming we can go back to just milk with re-placer?

I always use Baytril for fawn problems in the milk if they have a gut problem. It has always worked for me on e-coli
