Are you putting the pellets and the pedilyte in the milk? We have full-Nubains so her care would be pretty much the same, my kids receive 3 16 ounce bottles each day, and by 3 weeks are also eating hay and nibbleing at their grain mix. Mixing anything in the milk changes the fat composition of the milk and causes diarrhea. Put her on straight milk, warmed to 102 her body temp and feed 3 times a day, you can feed her twice. You want her to be hungry because you want her consuming hay, browse and grain. Since her rumen is messed up I would also be giving her 5 grams of Probios each day. She is also ripe for worms and cocci and would keep her wormed and on cocci prevention every 3 weeks, because of the stress of all of this. Hope this helps, and always feel free to E-Mail me privately if I could ever be of more help to you. Vicki McGaugh
