Thanks everyone for the input. Rectal temp today was 102.8 so not really running a fever. I talked to another vet and he said it sounds gastrointestinal related and not navel infection. I stopped the antibiotics and started Probios yesterday afternoon and will stay on it since I probably sterilized his stomach. Gonna try water and electrolytes for 2 days with some Kao-pectate mixed with it. Then a few days with half of the normal milk-replacer. I will update his status when I can. Thanks again.
