4 day old lamb not pooing!
Hello, we have an orphan lamb that we have had for three days now. The first day we had her she pooped a little black poo and has not had a poo since. Is this ok or should she be pooping? She is fed on profelac which is a lamb powdered milk that you mix up and feed. I think i may have overfed her yesterday and today but i'm starting to think she may be constipated? any advice appreciated, should she be pooping daily?
MEG: HAS SHE HAD COLOSTRUM? YOU CAN MAKE UP ARTIFICIAL COLOSTRUM, RECIPE ON P2 AT THIS LINK
OR USE A LITTLE MINERAL OIL (1 TSPN) IN HER MILK REPLACER. YOU CAN ALSO GIVE A WARM SOAPY ENEMA. NEVER OVERFEED OR OVER ENRICH THE FEED - IT CAN KILL.
