For my lambs, they were given one-half (1/2) chewable tablet of Pepto-Bismol (off brand, remember!) a day. Now, for baby animals, you have to grind up the tablets into fine powder and feed it to the baby a little at a time, gently swiping your finger across the tip if it’s tongue to moisten your finger so the powder will stick, and then putting your finger back into the baby’s mouth and rubbing the powder on its tongue.

The of nipple makes a huge difference. Don't know why, but if I use a new nipple or clean their nipple too well, they forget that's where milk comes from. Must be the smell.

Any alternative treatments would be appreciated. (I'm willing to antibiotic, but I consider it a last resort)
