Chloe has not gained a pound, and I swear that she is still loosing...
She was wormed, and I am offering her a TON of grain, but she is just NOT wanting to eat much...
She is acting normal and everything, but just doesn't have much of an appetite...
I am seriously thinking about buying another milk-doe, and drying her up to put some weight on her... She is really worrying me....
I have been giving her Vit-B shots but they don't seem like they're doing a darned thing!
Anyone have any ideas as to how else I can get her to eat?
I NEED to get some weight on her!

What are you feeding her? If your feed has a lot of molasses in it, it is most likley upsetting her rumen which is why she doesn't want to eat a lot. I would feed her more alfalfa pellets/hay and add some beet pulp, or start giving her a couple tablespoons of vegetable oil on her feed every day.

I would run a fecal before you worm, you don't know what worms you are dealing with, so the wormers may not be working for her.

Send a fecal in to the state lab. I would want a thorough fecal test done on her. Have you tested for Johnes?
