> V These guys have been on this HOT mix since they were weaned and doing fine . Called vet and he put them on LA-200 which I did really agree with . Now diarrhea seems to be under control . But now are running a temp of 105 and are very withdrawen and are way down on feed . One of them has a swelled neck on both sides ? Don't think thats from the injections . Trying to get a hold of Vet .
