How old? What is temp? What are the symptoms?
She is 4 weeks old, temp is normal, respiration normal, pulse normal. She is not too interested in her bottle and is not growing very fast. She is not dehydrated and is eating bits of hay and leaves, etc on our walks.

Have not done a fecal - She is not interested in her bottle, and is not growing very well, her sister is a voracious eater and quite a lot bigger. She is eating bits of hay and leaves, etc, when we go for walks.....

Different types of worms respond best to certain deworming products. A fecal test, including checking for coccidiosis, will identify which product would be best to use. You could give her type X worming product, but if she had type Y worms or cocci, it won't do a bit of good. Meadow Mist labs is used often by many people on this forum. A fecal sample is mailed to them, the results are emailed back to you. The cost is $6 plus the postage.

A fecal would be wise. Meadow mist is good and will give you complete detail report..
Also check her lower inner eye lids for color (famacha) you want to see deep pink to red. If she is pale then definitely need to treat and address parasites. Grab a clean fecal and get that done before you give any chemical dewormer. Have they been on coccidia prevention?
