Congratulations! I've been waiting and waiting for an update. They're adorable :love

I am sorry it took so long for an update, they were born the evening of the 22nd. I was up for about a week, so after that and the excitement, I feel ill. But all are doing great, thank you so much. Poor Mama monkey, she is still sore but I couldnt ask for a better mama. It amazes me how first timers take so well to it.

Okay, The first baby "Lucky" is on a bottle due to mama rejecting him and butting him into the stall wall. That has happened about a week ago. Lucky did great for the first few days. Now for the 48 hours he has had scours. He is now on electrlytes and the goat drench stuff in some water. It isnt going away, I started using pepto last night, and he still has it this morning.
He isnt running a fever his temp is 101.7, he gets up and jumps and plays, Hes not listless, hes not droppy he just has very loose stool. It was a yellowish tanish color, last night one was green, and now its brown. Hes cuddley the only time he goes down and mopes in when he is in the middle of pooping which he crys. I remember haveing kids and after a while they end up with sore chapped bottoms so thats what I figure his issue is.

What can I use on his bottom? How can I stop the scours. Ive read about baking soda delution. Please HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

What are/were you feeding him, quantity, frequency? Is he eating it?

Manna Pro Goat Electrolyte, mixed one scoop in 2 cups of warm water. I give him 2.5 oz 3 or 4 times a day, then I give water with 1 teaspoon sugar and 1 teaspoon nuti drench for goats. I give 2 cc of pepto every four hours. As of this morning, I got 2 oz of electrolytes, and he refuses everything now. His poo is like water, his energy is down today also.

We've given specto to scoury kids. It's off label for goats, but it works pretty well. We did one pump per bottle until the scouts cleared up.
I'm sure there will be naysayers about this, but I'm just sharing what has worked for us.
