    Hi----

    I found my three week old Nubian buckling out by the shed door in the snow, his mother threw him out . . .she decided she doesn't want him anymore.
    He has a fever and now his lungs are rattling softly.
    I have given him antibiotic and I have him by the stove.
    Anything else?

    I would give him some nutri drench - will he take a bottle at all? if not you may need to tube feed him or syringe feed.

    his temp is normal now, he had a fever earlier.
    his eyes are clear, and he can move his feet, but he pulls his neck back and can't seem to stablize it or lower it.
    what do you think is wrong? thankyou.

    I would give this baby a dose of thiamine (Vitamin B1) and B12. He really needs this in shot form. If you have Fortified B Complex give him a 5cc shot. If all you have is the regular stuff he will need a LOT. I would also treat him for cocci.
