Floppy Kid usually has symptoms apear in 10 -16 days of age causing muscle weakness around the larynx and pharynx making it difficult for the kid to smallow and causing aspiration pneumonia, that is just a thought and only a one of the symptoms associated with Floppy Kid but, wouldn't hurt to give daily doses of Vit E doubled at first just to see if symptoms get better. Vitamin E ALONE cannot be overdosed. I am also thinking though with an enlarged liver could it be possible that the kid has developed an umbilical infection maybe see if any joints are swollen or if there is a swollen area around the umilical cord. If this is the case very high doses of penicillin for a long period of time may help if not too far gone.
