Ewe gone wobbly

Got a NC mule ewe staggering around with poor coordination etc , she can see and is alert. I have treated her with mag and Calcium last night as well as AB. She is a lit worse this morning and I have given her more mag and Ca along with a shot of B1. She is quite thin compared to the others, probably in lamb , but not scanned yet.
Being fed FB , a few Malt Pellets with minerals and calcium carbonate added to the pellets through the snacker. 6 weeks from lambing date.
Any thoughts, advice or comments appreciated.
Many thanks

Thanks.
Just done that, covered that base at least, don't think its TLD , find they usually go lathargic and stiff etc with that and off there food. She was still eating a bit of fodder beet last night. I may well be wrong though.

How does Gid work?
It’s the larval stage (cyst) of a tapeworm found in foxes dogs etc, humans too but it isn’t good. Years ago the old man made a stainless steel punch for knocking a hole in the sheep’s head to remove it. Whether it was ever used or successful is something I don’t know.

One of those things on the side indoors and people ask what it is for and promptly wish they hadn’t !!

Could be any number of things really, your best bet is to call a vet for an accurate diagnosis.
Has she got a temperature? If not then that would rule out most infections.
