It may be best to check with a local veterinarian what the appropriate course of action is. Please separate the sick animals from the others to avoid others getting sick. You may want to set up a 'hospital pen' to provide sick animals easy access to feed, water and bedding. Isolation will help avoid further spread of the pathogen.

hope this helps,

good luck!
