[quote name="jerrilee cave" post="93353" timestamp="1402872059"]maggots are probably an incidental finding from the fawn being sick

Maggots eat on dead tissue. What would **if it were maggots** they be eating on and why?? Something wrong in the stomache?

SORRY for the loss of the baby! Absolutely Hate to loose an animal, especially a baby!

Remi I have lost two fawns over the years from maggots. They can be extremely deadly. Usually what happens is the mothers don't do a good job cleaning the rears of the fawns. The flys are attracted to the waste, they lay the larva which crawl into the intestines and begin eating. It is almost impossible to save the fawn if it gets to the point they show their sick, because it's usually very progressed when the fawn starts getting weak or sick. I have tried rinsing them out buy giving enema's and giving wormers. Nothing worked for me, both were to far gone.

From West Virginia, I have raised 3 does from birth, but this year I found a little Buck couldn't have been more than a couple days old, I gave him goat milk he is eating but not sucking the bottle just lapping it, I am stimulating him to urinate and other, but he is so weak he can't stand without falling most of the time, and he kinda has a slight wheeze when he lays down I am at a loss right now I don't wanna lose the little guy I haven't had this much trouble out of taking care of a baby deer.. Any advise
