Make sure to get rid of the nasty puss and crap you drain out of jaw. You already have a problem and by squirting that crap all over your ground sure wont help ya out. I always just use an 18 guage needle and a bigger syringe to suck the crap out, then i squirt penicillin into the wound and suck that back out and squirt into something you can dispose of..Repeat,Repeat,Repeat until all looks good with no puss visible.*

Bottlefeds you could lance and keep wound clean from flies. They can be very nasty wounds..

So what about the 2 meds. *do you give them both to catch both sides of the spectrum? *I have only been giving them Baytril. *Is there another drug that is just as effective as draxin? *


*


If the abscess is small should I lance it as well or let the body heal with the meds? *

Ok so we just lanced the one fawn who's photo I attached and no puss came out. *Only blood. *Any ideas??? * This is really making us scratch our heads. *We have never seen swollen jaws like this before and now that it's been lanced I don't know if it is "lumpy jaw".


*


We started seeing the problem pop up when we switched the milk replacer brand to the DuMor brand. *Have you ever heard of milk being contaminated? *I just gave the third injection of Baytril and not seeing anything change. *

If it was hard and no puss it is fuso infection in the bone and will be hard to cure but antibiotics are your answer.* Draxin would be a good choice because it lasts longer, one shot should last a week for sure.* Baytril is really to be done twice a day so is harder to work with.


If they are bottle fawns put the wormer in the milk.* We just did ours yesterday with Valbenzen and will reworm in ten days as this will get the first and second stage worms.* If they are on the moms you can use the wormer on the food but it is hard to get them all.* As fawns are slow to eat most will go into the does so is not a good way for them while on*does.* Any of the injectable wormer like Ivermic will work.

Tammy, I'd treat with Draxxin, Baytril is not near as good as Draxxin is for this problem. You ought to be able to buy/get 3-4cc of Draxxin from a vet without buying a $250.00 bottle of it. Draxxin is the only thing I use for Fuso and it works.

Ok just saw this second page. *


*


Our vet does not carry Draxxin so we will have to find it from another vet or order it. *What are your thoughts on Nuflor? *Also have you ever seen it spread to the legs. *The fawn we put down yesterday ended up with a swollen foot that we just thought she tweaked but then it abscessed and ruptured. *This morning one of my girls with swollen jaws is limping and it looks like her knee is swollen. *This fuso is a mess. *I have never seen it in the 8 years I've been rehabbing fawns. *This has taken a toll on us this year. *


*


These are all bottle fed fawns.*

I have been rehabbing fawns for 8 years and I have never seen this. *I am learning something new but at the cost of these babies. *I really appreciate you all taking the time to educate and share your wisdom. *People always ask me how I can do what I do and still be a hunter but it's not about making these babies pets it's just giving them a second chance to live. *I respect both ends of nature. *
