Default One-Day-Old Kid With Scours

One of our day-old bucklings has very runny yellow poop rather than the usual lumps of yellow pellets. Would Pepto be a good start? That's the only thing I have on hand at the moment.

Thanks

Some have runny yellow & others a lot more solid like pudding. I would not be concerned or do anything other than keeping his butt clean as you can. Some does clean kids well & others don't.

Mom is raising both kids, so no bottles. Both seem happy and healthy today, so maybe they had a little too much of a good thing yesterday. Mom is keeping them pretty clean except where it got down on their legs. I'll take a damp towel out and soak as much loose as I can.
