Fawns need your help

Hi everyone,

I'm new to the forum. I live in Oregon and have two wild, black-tail fawns I'm trying to help survive this winter. The fawns (both females) were orphaned early this summer, shortly after they first emerged from the woods. One fawn (the bigger of the two) appears to be doing well. The smaller one is not thriving. She is not growing, her coat is thin, and she has a lump on her muzzle. Instead of small pellets, her feces are thick blobs that stick to the hair around her anus. I don't think she will make it through winter without intervention. I'm wondering if there is a probiotic I could give to her to help out her gut fauna. I already gave her two small doses of Ivermectin.

Any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated.


Also, the fawns have been eating apples from my apple tree and I have been providing them Purina AntlerMax 20 pellets, which they don't really seem to care for.
