Coccidia are considered internal parasites but are resistant and non-responsive to dewormers used for internal parasites in goats. Practically all goats tolerate a low level of coccidia with no adverse effects. A high level of coccidia, especially in kids, damages the intestinal lining resulting in improper or reduced absorption of nutrients and weight loss. This damage can also result in bloody and dark diarrhea, causing dehydration and death. In some cases, very little diarrhea, if any, has been observed. Stress induced from changes in weather or sudden changes in feeding, such as from pasture to dry lot, will often result in a severe coccidia outbreak. Feeds can be purchased with Bovatec (Lasalasid),Deccox (Deccoquinate)or Rumenin (Momensin) formulated in them. Lasalosid is a treatment while the others are preventives.
