 Bottle fed lambs should not have worms as they are not grazing ?   are you sure its not coccidiosis ??

Vecoxan - vet may supply individual doses so you don't need to buy a whole bottle but all lambs should be treated.  May need extra fluids if scouring badly.

 If you could take the worst lamb to your vet then you would get a definite answer

Hi Zarzar- I can't advise, but you may be better posting this on the sheep forum. There are some very experienced peeps there who may be able to help x
