    Strange that he has survived for a month and is now getting sick. What kind of poop does he have? Runny, watery, thick, clear? Temperature - fever? How is his breathing? I assume that you vaccinated for CDT.

    Can’t find him and he’s not hollering like normal. He got out the pen (sneaky thing) so I don’t know

    I have an orphaned lamb. Her mother had died a few weeks after the birth. I had some of the same symtoms you had, it was the pro biotics that the little baby needed. Stopped the scours and just got her back on track. Hope he is doing better.
