She started on milk replacer, she had scours we put her on a whole milk mixture with buttermilk, and evaporated milk. Scours stopped. She did not finish her bottle last night. She is very greedy. This morning and tonight same thing. She is only doing a half bottle. She is not active and doesn't seem to want to lay down.
This is ou BABY anyone have a clue? Could she be constipated? We have seen her pee but not poop. So she may be going I am not sure. Open to all suggestions.

When you switch over from powder replacer to whole milk replacer, you need to do it slowly, by mixing it together for a while. How much are you feeding at a time? How many times a day/night are you feeding? Did she get colostrum?
slowly going to another formula is the best way to go....... a couple of doses of C&D antitoxin probably wouldn't hurt her either....and a dose of probios to get her gut balanced off too.. is she eating any grain or hay? ....... I have always had horrible results with the powdered milk replacers and will never use them again.... that is how I ended up getting some Nubians just for that reason.... but that has exploded into something else all together now..... was just going to use their milk for any babies who might have needed it....... Hope she is doing better..... let us know how ya'll are doin
