Welcome to the site:)

Was the ewe vaccinated against the clostridial diseases prior to lambing and has the lamb been done since birth. This sounds a bit like pulpy kidney, the only thing swinging me away from that is it is usually a very quick killer.

You say she has access to grass and I'm wondering if it's lush spring growth? Read HD's suggestions and see if that helps - in 40 years of keeping sheep I've never had bloat in them, just in cattle when they gorge themselves on spring clover.
