I am going threw the same thing right now. You can mix a teaspoon of raw canned pumpkin in about 6-8 oz of milk and feed in bottle at each feeding. It seems to help. We have also resorted to giving 2cc orally of pepto bismol every 6 hours until it stops. I have collected a stool sample and wife is dropping off to vet this morning. Guess I need to rule out Coccidiosis or any thing along those lines.

a full bottle at one feeding is way to much for a fawn of that age. I would cut him back to maybe 6 ounce 3 times a day every 8 hours. Add a little canned raw pumpkin to the milk and have fresh dirt for it to eat off the floor. A stool sampe tested at the vet is highly recommended.

The children seek to resolve the issue amongst themselves, and mete out punishment to restore balance and keep the fireboy and watergirl game going.
