Well, I took my fecal sample to the vet today, and got the dreaded diagnosis of coccidia. They are going to get back to me tomorrow with the treatment that I should use, as I have quite a mixture of goats right now....2 1 week olds, 2 three week olds, 1 12 week old, 2 1 year olds, and two nursing does. None have sysmptoms...no diarrhea, all are eating and drinking well, playing, babies all gaining weight and growing well. Hopefully I caught it early enough. My goats live in clean conditions-no overcrowding-what could have brought this on all of a sudden?? Could it be the warm, wet weather?? I've tried to read as much as I can about it. I know the treatment is a sulfer drug. How is that given to the babies?? Also the vet said I should be feeding a medicated feed-coccidiostat. Do you guys recommend that?? So many questions...sorry...but please bombard me with suggestions....you guys are my life lines...I'm not too confident with my vet as far as knowing a whole lot about goats. Thanks...
