So, 2 of my bucks Rueben and Gideon got into something poisonous, it was an accident, and it's been taken care of... Gideon snapped out of fairly quickly, he is chewing his cud, eating drinking etc... and is fine... Poor Rueben has been down, unable to walk etc... Yesterday I tried my hardest to get electrolytes in him, since Friday he was sick.. I could only get 20 mls down him..., he fought hard.... So my guess was, that he was still fighting so I will continue too... I didn't know why I didn't think of this, but the vet gave me a lactaid ringer for my dog Blessing, unfortunately I never got to use it on her, because she went down hill really fast, and so we had to put her down, she was diagnosed with late stage kidney failure.... That was a couple weeks ago, so I totally forgot I had it in the refrigerator... Well, I used one dose on Rueben, and within minutes he was up looking for something to eat...YAY I'm so glad he is much better, still have a ways to go, but a HUGE improvement
