    A few days ago Sam was in with the yearling. Boss went to go and feed them and he did not come out of the dog house and Pancakes was runing in and out of the dog house. My boss got Sam and took him into the house because he crashed. At first his body temp went down but she was doing great that same night. Just in case she put him in with Dude, Tasha, Boris and Blossoms my velcro babies. He was doing great. Enjoying being in with all of them. Saturday night Tasha was screaming. She always gose off if there is something wrong. Sam was sersoring (sp). My boss got the sersorse to stop and he was brought back into the house and he slowly passed away. He went peacefully with out pain. We have only had Sam for a little while but I am crying hard. He talked to me when I feed him and loved to be scratch on the side of his head. I am going to miss my little Sammey.

    So sorry you lost the little guy. Seizures are awful to see in any living creature, do you know what caused him to go down?
    The pain of loss does ease up with time, just know that he is in a better place :hug:

    I am so sorry hun. I know how hard it is to watch them seizure. I had a newborn lamb that was rejected, and she did that. She would seizure and stargaze all the time. And she would cry until someone stayed with her during the night. It was a very hard, emotional night. She passed away the next morning on the way to the vet's office.

    oh corax I'm sorry

    I lost a bottle baby doe, Diva, last year. She was fine, no problems whatsoever, I went out with the bottles in the afternoon, she tripped over and was immediately unresponsive and seizing. She seized all the way into the vet, about an hour altogether. Vet put her on heat pad (her temp was below normal) and saline drip, both temp and heart rate returned to normal and seizures stopped. It looked like she would pull through, until that night she crashed again, seizing again. Vet gave her valium to stop the seizures, but couldnt get the heart rate and temp up again and lost her about 10.30pm. She started at 3pm.

    My vet researched and researched and couldnt figure out what it was, the only thing he could come up with was an E.coli infection that enters via the navel and settled in the brain.

    There was nothing we could do :( and it sounds like your baby might have been the same
