Young lambs have runny bottoms, It'll come right.

Sorry but I dont totally agree with this and this is how you can lose a lamb if it is scouring. Scouring animals go down hill fast and need re-hydration

If it's scouring badly it may need electrolytes rather than milk for a short while. Ask your vet.

What has worked for us is ....
Take it off the milk powder for a couple of days and give Dexolyte, tube fed if necessary.
Also, give antibiotics.
I am firmly of the belief that the abomasum, where the milk is digested, should be sterile. Thus if I'm correct it should not have yoghurt bugs (Lactobacillaceae) in it.
