I have a 2 month old lamb not thriving. he has been eating pasture and doing well up until 2 days ago. we gave him b complex and a de wormer. he is now not wanting to eat last time he ate and drank water was yesterday. he mother only gave milk for 1 month. then she rejected both kids. earlier this month he was eating and drinking with no problem, then now he seems to be losing weight . any suggestions would be helpful

What is his poop like? At 2 months old, I’d be worried about coccidia.

What did you give for a dewormer and how much?

Do you have a picture you can post of him to give us a better idea of his overall condition?

Good morning. His poop is round balls soft. Normal. He did have scouts. But we treated this. I will treat for coccidia . Today we pulled him from the others and fed him. He ate and frank water

Good afternoon, He is doing fine now after some tlc. He is eating and drinking even moving better. We had a very cold snap here in south Texas. We were trying to keep everyone warm and alive . Thank you all for your help.
