Scouring in lamb
« on: April 05, 2021, 08:19:44 am »
Good morning everyone.

We are new to lambs and have a week old molly lamb who has been up and down for a few days and is now scouring yellow goo. She is very reluctant to take a feed as well.

Is there anything I can do to help her. She was taking 150-200ml a feed 4 times a day. Now struggle to get 50ml in to her.

Unfortunately we have lost a few of the mollys we got in. One to a heart issue and one to watery mouth.  Now losing another is just heart breaking.

Sorry not to have seen your post , i assume by now either lamb is better or gone , the problem with orphan lambs in general is that they have had a poor start in life often not getting sufficient colostrum , oral antibiotics such as Spectam scour halt given either to prevent or treat plus some form of rehydron to put back essential fluids , can be usefull
