    I would try mixing up the formula a bit differently to see if that helps with the runs and give her 6cc of pepto

    Scours is another name for diarrhea. The quick change from one to the other will likely make her scour worse before she gets better...the 6cc of Pepto will help with that, but she needs to get it now as it can a few hours to work

    I gave her the 6cc of Pepto. Here is some pics of what I think her scours are.

    Poor little guy - yep that's scours.... Probably from going from colostrum straight to the supplement.

    yes...you can give it every 6-8 hours as needed, it should firm up and be pasty, not runny...she won't make berry clumps until she's adjusted to the milk. Add a bit of yogurt to her bottles too, a teaspoon of any yogurt with live cultures to 4 ounces will be good...just be sure theres no fruit in it to plug the hole in the nipple.

    If you're using replacer and they have a problem like that, I suggest cutting down the mix by like 1/4. Might be too rich for them.
