Fawn pulled from Houston flooding

I received a 20 pound fawn pulled from flood waters in Houston. She is 20 pounds and has no visible injuries. I don't know what trauma she went through. She won't take a bottle with formula. I have water, browse, corn, and goat chow available to her. Also apples and grapes. She hasnt touched her food. She is able to walk, but mostly just lays around. She allows me to approach and touch her. Any recommendations on what to give her to get her back on her feet?

I would give her some subQ fluids if possible. B12 shot

try the bottle again, I'd use red cap. Will she take the nipple in her mouth??

She took an 8 ounce bottle! I also gave her some Nutri-Cal and Jump Start. I had to chase her around the stall to catch her, so I see that as a sign of some improvement.
