I got a call from a local farmer. She is raising her first bottle baby. A pygmy who is 29 days old. She's been having a rough time with the kid. Tried a couple different replacers (the most recent one suggested by a local vet). The kid is scouring again. She got my name from the local mill as a potential source for goat's milk. The one time the kid actually had pellets was when it had goat's milk from the vet's freezer. I told her to try store bought Vit. D milk for the kid. My question is, how much should a Pygmy kid be drinking every four hours? She was feeding it 4 ounces initially, the vet had her drop it to 2 ounces and my inclination is to bring it back up to four ounces, because 12 ounces a day seems like soo little. My three week old doeling who was 2.8 pounds at birth is drinking 30 ounces a day right now and growing like a weed. I also encouraged her to join and hope she does.
