We have a sick fawn, 4 1/2 mos. old,*not growing @ all, was wormed, test show no worms, eats just like the other fawns, keeps a very soft poo all the time,*had blood test done, that is showing the liver isn't producing enough enzyme for her to digest her food, her body is not*absorbing*enough *nutrients for her to grow,**waiting for results from lab running more test. Any one have an idea of what might help her?

This response seems so simple I am sure you have asked already if it is possible. But here goes anyway. Can you artificially supplement that enzyme?

I'm not sure, & the vet isn't sure either, he is trying to find out if there a way we can, I'm trying to do the same on here.

Try a different diet. Strawberries, grapes, blueberries, greens, and shredded beet pulp. Don't give her any grains. I would definitely also try vaccinating her with pnuevac2. Her immune system likely is weak. She is vulnerable. Did you try worming her for liver flukes?
