    Whisper looks terrible today! yesterday she was fine, but overnight she has passed SO much scour she is so sunken in. She has poo all over her which doesn't help. She is entirely milked out by the kids her udder looks like an empty sack, and she wont eat her grain :(

    I have wormed her and given her vit B, cobalt/copper and penstrep...

    Keep her hydrated....

    ok I have switched her feed and offered her creep feed which the lambs eat, and she ate that - yay! She also has drunk some electrolytes with molasses mixed in, voluntarily, which is also good. I found my American friend had pepto bismol! I gave her like 20cc of it I have no idea how much I was supposed to, but it said 30cc for humans... so I dunno.

    She is still scouring.

    Pepto is 30 cc for adults and 6cc for kids and can be given up to 3 x a day to help bind the poop...hope she feels better soon.

    thanks for that. She doesn't appear to have scoured any more tonight and she ate a bit of creep feed and drank some more electrolytes/molasses so that is a good sign.
