We purchased 3 orphaned female lambs yesterday ages 5 days, 6 days and 8 days. I'm certain one of them (6 day old) has scours. Probably from overfeeding but not certain. We are brand new to lambs. She ate her milk fine at mid bottle yesterday but refused to eat last feeding and morning feeding. That's when I realized she had diarrhea. Doing much research realized she has scours. I think she probably already had it when we brought her home. I made some electrolyte supplement from water, honey, salt & baking soda that I found on a ranchers site. I have forced her to eat the electrolyte solution twice but am only able to get about 2 oz in her each time. She isn't nearly as energetic as yesterday and this worries me. How often should I feed her this, should she still be eating milk substiture etc... and please advise what else to do?
