    Boer nanny with diarrhea for second day and slightly lethargic. I gave her some dewormer this morning. Had noticed that she had gotten into my chicken feed(which is made up of layer pellets, and Milo) a couple days ago when she had gotten out of her pen. And today noticed Milo (undigested) throughout her stool. Any suggestions?

    her rumen is compromised, most likely from the chicken feed, get her temp to see where she is at .101.5-103.5 is normal range...
    toxins are building because her rumen is sluggish or shutting down...
    If you have C D Antitoxin I would be giving her that ever 4 hours...if you dont have it or cant get it ASAP you can give her Milk of magnsia....the MOM will not help the runs right now..but it wil help flush the toxins building in her gut. Its important to be sure she stays hydrated while runny...even if you have to drench or do IV fluids...

    off her grain right now..she needs hay alfalfa or green leaves...for now..

    Today she is moving around more without coaxing. And actually acting interested in eating prairie hay. Her stool isn't as watery as yesterday, though still seeing plenty of whole Milo in it. She did not like the electrolite drink but I managed to get her to swallow most of the first half gallon I made over the course of a couple hours, after that she decided that she wanted to drink her water on her own.
