Hi everyone,

There was recent discussion regarding the feeding of urea to goats as well as Lasalocid. Here is an answer I received back from Purina for those interested:

"Urea is not an acceptable substitute for Lasalosid...Urea is used as a source of protein for some ruminant animals--beef cattle and dairy cattle. Goats do not tolerate urea very well and as a result we have have not and do not put urea in any goats diets. I have however, seen urea used in some of our competitor's diets. Too much urea can be toxic to goats. All our goat diets are "All Natural" and therefore do not contain urea or any other animal by-products. Lasalosid is a coccidiostat that is not approved for goats and therefore we have never included this is our diets...."
