|My ewes were out on pasture and I needed them to be more fresh for fair so I bumped up there few handfuls of grain a day (they are a little spoiled) to about one of the 2 quart scoops. This was about 3 weeks ago and they are still scoaring. I have been giving them pepto bismal and it does not seem to be helping. They still run like crazy right to the grain and their heads aren't down anymore but they are still scoaring. Anyway I can plug them up?|

|This is a bit more labor intensive, but when pepto doesn't work, I give usually one imodium per 50 pounds. I crush them up to a powder and dissolve in water in a syringe, one animal at a time. If its really bad, I give them an extra one. It seems to help stop it better and lasts longer.
If you just all of a sudden started the grain, give em a few days and they'll get back to normal. I'd give them some probiotics too.

|I am giving them Probios. Do you know where I could get imodium?|

|Scours are syptom of some type of problem. I would try to fix the problem , and the scours will fix it self.The only type of scours that I worry about is in baby lambs. If an adult has scours, you have a nutrtional problem, and the correct way to fix that , is fix your feeding problems. |
