What is the best treatment when a fawn gets real loose? I have a 12 day old fawn started getting loose 2 days ago. Will eat fine in the morning and mid day but not so well in the evening. I have gave it Target Probiotics paste today and yesterday, also a shot of Baytril (spelling ??) tonight.

www.whitetailsales.com has a great product that I have used for the last 3 years. It is called All Natural Correction and it is a gelling product. It is the only thing that I have found that actually helps with loose stools. I use it in every bottle for one day for all feedings and by the next day, they are usually firm and most start to pellet. It does not help with a coccidia infested fawn though. I usually cut the milk replacer in 1/2 for the day too. It is an awesome product and I can't say enough good about it!!

What are you calling real loose? All Water? Any Blood?

No blood, just not much to any solid. Feed the fawn this morning he is strong and ate well but has the squirts.

I would feed only water and electrolites for a few feedings and that should help firm him up

I just had the same problem. See if your vet has any sulfaquinoxiline, give 1 cc on day one and 1 cc on day two and mine cleared right up. This is a great product but you need a vet to get it.

Please don't take this the wrong way...

But you don't know what problem you are trying to correct...

Antibiotic's may make it worse ...It could be he is starting to eat grass or hay...As long as it is taking in an OK amount of milk (Daily) and acting OK...

Pumpkin is a natural solution.

I would watch sticking it or feeding it a bunch of meds without knowing there is a problem,Or you could make it much worse...Just my thoughts...

Coming from an EMT...I see people try to self medicate themselves and O'BOY...

Billie Jo is right the best thing you can do is take a sample to your vet and have them send it off to be cultured.........you don't want to treat something if it does not need treated......this is why when my fawns started having loose stools I sent it off to be cultured and in my case it came back positive for coccidia not good....so now i am trying to aggressively treat the fawns for coccidia.............there are many reasons for the scours and sometimes it could be something that just didn't agree with them which is what i hope is the case for your fawn..........good luck!!

did you up the ozs givin? this will loosen them up. Or too much replacer will do it to. And I'm with BillieJo dont like pumping meds. I like using pumpkin also and it works well.

I know what you mean Dennis. There is no pumpkin to be found in my area. In years past I normally add a few teaspoons to every mixing. I feel lost without it. Allen

our local store keeps plenty of pumpkin in stock if it is the right stuff, say's 100% pure pumpkin ingredient list is just pumpkin. If someone wants some and cant find it just let me know I will send you some. it is Libbys exact can as in the photo above.



My fawn is much better now not 100% but improving.
