    how cold is it out at your place? was he separated from mom? Mom could be in a bit of shock since his sister died --- she probably wasnt letting him eat.

    Give him some warm milk if you can but also give him some B complex and that Karo mixture i Told you about

    Mixture of Karo or molasses, Coffee and Whiskey in equal parts. That will bring his temp up. I would give about 1/2 a cc.
    Rub him really good to get him warmed up and the circulation going.

    :pray:

    If you have a hot water bottle or heating pad then you can put him on that to help him warm up. Make sure it's not too hot.

    How is his capillary refill? Could he be dehydrated as well?

    if you have any lamb and kid paste or probios i would stick a little of that down him. If you set him up and place his legs under him can he stand? or does he just fall down?

    That's GREAT !!! Sounds like he really just needed to regain his strenght, and giving him the mixture really speeded things up for him ! Sounds like you have a bottle baby on your hands now ... oh the fun of it ;)
    I think this calls for some pictures !! ;)

    Temp is down to 99.6 (he got out from his blankets and was laying on top of them at least for 2 hours)

    Standing on his own

    Not fond of the bottle.

    I wonder if he treated his momma like he treats the bottle. And if that is the case no wonder she doen't want him around. He grabs the nipple and "chews" on it and then pulls back real hard...

    So here is my question - Now that I more then likely have a bottle baby - I work and am gone from home for 12-13 hours a day M-Th. "goatie grandma" is not available to babysit as she works this time of year and they are about to move to their winter home in Florida. I was thinking of making a sweater for him, putting a heat light out, and putting him and his mom together in a small pen. Then I can supplement his feedings with a bottle if he still needs it..... I am just worried since I can't feed him for so many hours during the day.....

    What do you all think?

    now that he is stronger why not try putting him back with his mama and see how he does? and if he latches right on then you know that during the day he will be ok.
