So sorry Susie I really don't think it was alfalfa pellets tho that caused this. I have a doeling I got at 6wks old straight off her dam. Never could get her to take a bottle and she also wouldn't drink milk from a pan she was put on straight alfalfa pellets and then gradually added some grain for her. Never a problem. So even tho your little doe bloated and some will just from all milk it is just something that happens and we have to be prepared to handle it if at all possible. I really feel there was an underlying cause here.
