Just got a 5 month old kid who has been of milk syncs it was 3 months old it doesn't look too good like its skinny looking dewormer it and stuff but the coat is still dull and scrappy looking, well I went to go feed my calfs milk replacer and the kid freaked out trying to get the milk! Is it possible it did dent get enough milk? Can I put it back on milk VERRY slowly? If eel bad for him but don't want to kill him by feeding milk

I wouldnt...he should already have a fully functioning rumen..small amounts of milk wont actually hurt him but he doesnt really need it. I would have a fecal done to be sure your wormer in working...check closely for lice and signs of mites...
by the sounds of his condition it sounds like parasites of some kind...check for signs of anemia ( lower inner eye lid)
