    I would say take a fecal in and make sure that the parasites were taken care of. They may have coccidia - which regular dewormer will not treat.

    For weight - I would give grains, rolled outs, and BOSS mix twice a day with a real nice hay. Minerals and baking soda always.

    Good Luck!

    Definately have the fecal done to be sure all the parasites have been killed and I would be feeding a good quality alfalfa mixed hay as well as a high protein grain ...Hope they start to pick up for you soon.
