there is a million things that can cause anemia worms are just one reason. look inside their eyelids are they pink or white. if they are white or light pink they are anemic. If they are on does and not bottle fed they might be hard to treat.

Get a fecal sample after you find out the cause and take care of it Then you can treat the anemia. something we use in goats for this condition is mix up a batch of ‘Magic,’ use one part corn oil (DO NOT substitute with vegetable oil, olive oil or canola), one part molasses and two parts Karo Syrup. Give 2 oz. 4 times a day. Dont ask me why this works. Also like to give B complex every other day for 7-10 days.

I saw a 240 inch buck last year with lumpy jaw that broke inside and he died pretty quickly. Necropsy showed the path of the poison right into his glands.

I've always used Draxxin. Somewhere I read that the bacteria causing the lumpy jaw was similar to the one that causes hoof rot. It's always worked good for me. I had a buck fawn with swelling under his chin and I used Corid and it cleared right up--but I think that's a different matter.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

We lost a doe to a tooth impaction and the resulting infection. She was regular weight, was eating, showed no signs of malaise. Sepsis was our first warning. The autopsy revealed bacterial exudate lining most of the jaw and skull. It broke the myth of "if shes eating, shes going to be fine" for us. Antibiotics if identified early would have been ideal.

You might try fusoguard! Its a killed vaccine that covers all fusobacteriums that are associated with everything from pneumonia to foot rot and lumpy jaw! Works great for me in the past-Jason DCW
