The buck kid on the left, 2weeks old, has scours and is crying out like his belly hurts. I've never had one this young scour. Is it too early to give Dimethox liquid?? If not, how much do I give one this small (maybe 8 lbs)?

Bright green usually says feed-related scours. I would give him 2 ccs of Pepto, a pinch of baking soda, and some probios for a day or two. If I doesn't clear up then, a fecal may be in order.

Is he dam or bottle raised?
Yes I'd give him a couple cc pepto now then again a few hours later. If it doesnt clear up in a day or two we'll go from there.
The baking soda in with pepto is a good idea, just a pinch.

I sure dont like the crying in pain part, rule of thumb in my book, stomach issues equal cd antitoxin. The one time I didnt follow my own rule with a doe with scours she ended up dead by the end of the day and the only sign was the runs. I would also follow the advise above.

I agree with cd antitoxin..I might pull him from mom as well for the night..but at least I would give the CDA, pepto, electros..Banamine for the pain..
