Dont compound your problems. Why is she thin? She should take care of a pair of fawns with no problem. Is she eating enough? Getting pushed from the feeder-Has a bad tooth and not eating?? Could be a number of things.

There is a reason she is a bag of bones it's not just from the Fawns sucking her down it sounds like something else is going on.

Be careful running through a drop chute with a milk bag. It could rupture!

Agree with allenb. Saw a guy run a doe with milk bag throught the chute and it caused mastitis. Lost the doe and the fawns.

its been a week and no visible changes. she is drinking and eating, how much i dont know as she is on feeder and graze, we did chute her, found nothing wrong we can figure. gave her antibiotics , vitamin b, wormer,and probiotics. she has always been in a pen by herself with her two fawns. will keep our fingers crossed an hope for the best.
