I had posted about a sick doeling we have viewtopic.php?f=12&t=17858. Last night it appeared she ate and drank barely anything, she was laying in the draw. We got her up, she jumped around on the stall walls as she knew what were were up to, we medicated her (antibiotic injection, injection of vit B and iron, energy malt, and vitamin "A" solution by mouth). Then she just layed back down in the straw. We called the vet again, he said to tube feed her and stop the energy malt. When I left this morning to go pick up tubing and the calf nutrient/electolyte powder, she looked aweful, didn't even raise her head to look at me when I came in. I thought for sure she'd be dead before I got back. When I got back, she was up and eating some alfalfa hay and seemed perky. I put out some warm water with electrolytes in it, she drank some of that (probably less than a cup), then was licking at the loose minerals. Half hour later shes laying in the straw looking like shes dying again. Would you go ahead and tube her? Or just leave her as long as she keeps getting up to eat and drink a little and keep monitering her?
