Good morning, I have a kid (bottle baby)that got diarrhea yesterday morning,started yellow and phlegm-like ,which i know isn't good but then turned black/Green and has continued on till today.
She is bouncing around and being completely normal and crazy and doesn't act sick at all.

Here are some points I thought may be helpful in getting some advice

-She is 3 weeks old Boer cross bottle baby
-I milk the mom, shes only ever been on her milk
-she is in the house right now (we've had frigid temps and weren't expecting having a bottle baby)
-She got her C & D vac.the night before the Diarrhea (is that known to cause diarrhea!? ive never seen that before)
-she has also gotten to go out side and play a few days, maybe trying new
-she grinds her teeth since she was born ....which i know is associated with pain some times ....but she has always been running around and happy soo i figure its just from teething and trying new foods ect.
-not acting sick, eating bottles regular
-not bloated
-i have never seen her drink water

hope some of this helps with a conclusion. please help with advice on what i can do for her diarrhea! I wanna get this under control before something worse happens.I have put soo much into keeping her healthy the last 3 weeks( when we found her she was near froze to death and couldn't walk or take to the doe) and it would just break my heart if something happened at this point.

Thank you soooo much for reading!

This is a double post. It is best to just keep the one that already has activity open and delete this. You will have better attention.
