    I have a 4 month old Buff Orph, that started acting lethargic. I confined her and noticed that she very thin, and now she starting to get these little scabs.

    Her first symptoms were:

    Molting
    Constant scratching
    Lethargic
    Bruising on legs
    Scabs on face

    Ive treated for worms and mites, no sign of blood in stool. Still eating and drinking, but sleeping a lot.


    PLEASE HELP! I don't want to loose her!

    I think I'd feel better if @casportpony addressed this. She knows more about worming and meds than I do or most on here.

    Thank you. I'm so sad. I hope she pulls through, she's just SO skinny! My other ones are almost double her size!
