I was reading posts on how much feed to give my doe that is nursing kids and I am milking and it sounded like I was not giving her enough feed so I started giving her alot more then I was and now she has diarrhea. How can I get rid of the diarrhea?
Sudden changes in diet can cause diarrhea...up the amount gradually rather than all at once. If she is still having the diarrhea in the morning, give her a child's dose of pepto or kaopectate and see if that helps. Do NOT use Immodium...not good for goats.
I too have a newly freshened doe with BAD diarrhea, all of a sudden. She was given a bit a grain to make her stand still so I could milk out her enormous udder and now she is off everything. No fever, drinking plenty of water with a little ACV in it too. Should I get her some copper sulfate, dolomite, Vit C? Her triplets are hanging in there but one has very runny poops too and the dow is not cleaning her up as is usual. Any suggestions?
