    Have a lamb that is shivering we have him in by a heater. He has collapsed a couple times when trying to lay down. I’m thinking it may be magnesium deficiency from what I have read. What are things that you all have done to try and fix this issue that worked?

    I have no experience with sheep. If it were a goat, I would take their temperature, provide fluids, check their eye lid skin to see if they are anemic; drench them with electrolyte solution, hit them with Jump start paste, and get them to a vet. Hoping you have a good outcome with your critter!!!

    Thansk for reply. Bought drench and electrolyte stuff tonight hoping that will work. He still eats his bottle so I think I’m early on and good shape.
