    Ok Simba is a month and a half old. He has had Diarrhea off and on for the past couple of weeks. Its not like water but just think diarreah I have treated him with Dimethiox(sp) in case it is coccidia for up to 5 days. And I also have given him scour(sp) stop and this clears it right up for about a week , but then it comes back.

    Now I am thinking that maybe he has diarrhea because he is a single kidd nursing off of a heavy milker that milks 4 pounds a day. although he is seporated during the day from his mom he still gets it.

    What do you think?
