Sometimes they amaze you at how they hang in there-have one myself at the moment-born 3 weeks ago with a'granuloma'on its head.Am liquidizing and giving Critical care and she is actually gaining weight just through drinking.they do need to be on their own though or they get trampled and pushed around by the others.
Had one last year who didn't thrive and was syringing blended stuff into her 3 times a day for weeks on end.She eventually turned the corner and is now a year old and 70gm so keep going.................Good Luck
