I have a year and a half old wether Linus. He didn't eat this morning, or tonight which is highly unusual. However his temp is 102.3, he peed and pooped just fine about 10 min ago, and he was chewing his cud earlier. I have not seen him drink, so wondering if as a precaution I should give some electrolytes. Eyelids looked a little pale. He was coughing some earlier this week, and had some nasal discharge. Any suggestions?

He was standing chewing his cud right before I put them in for the night. I'm going back out there to give probiotics, electrolytes, and some b complex... Hoping for the best, as he is one of my first bottle kids....

If he is chewing a cud..then rumen is functioning..be sure its not him grinding his teeth and not chewing a cud...spend a few minutes watching him...temp him with green leaves

Update, and so confused. He ate some hay this morning, and some fir branches. I observed him for about a half hour just a bit ago, and noticed his mouth is all white inside??? What could that mean? Temp is still good, and I gave him some more electrolytes this morning, will do so in about an hour. Any ideas... Oh and he did eat a little more baking soda.

If he is anemic, his mouth will be pale...is that what you mean?

I would give daily B complex
red cell 6 cc per 100# double day one, reg. dose for a week then once a week until color returns
Vit B 12 high protien feed, alfalfa and green leaves to help him rebuild red blood cells
Mix 50/50 ACV and water and drench 20 cc daily to speed recovery

If he has not been wormed with a good wormer,,, Ivomec plus or Valbazen are both good choices..

Take his temp as well.coughing could be lung worms, a cold, allergies, dust from hay or feed...
