My doe kidded 4 weeks ago and she seemed to recover quickly with normal pellets. then the rain stopped and I let them all out to pasture. she had clumpy poo which I figured was due to the rich grass. When it didn't go away I wormed her with 2 1/2cc ivomect subQ. It is no longer diarrea but it still has not cleared up. my other doe was not affected (I wormed her anyway) Any ideas?

It could be coccidiosis. This is caused by an internal parasite that is not a worm. You must treat it with a sulfa drug like 12.5% Sulmet drinking water solution. Check the medicine cabinet of this board for dosage instructions. Be sure to medicate for a full 5 days to kill the coccidia. Also be sure to alternate Sulmet with Probios to replace any rumen bacteria killed by the Sulmet.
