Hello, My nubian seemed to have diarrhea out of no where today. It is completely watery. I had noticed though that her manure had switch from "berries" to "sausage" like. I have another doe that is starting to do the same thing but she doesn't have diarrhea....yet. I've never had a goat do this so I'm not really sure what I should do or give her. I feed all my goats a 12% pellet but I recently up those two doe's feed because I noticed they were getting a little thin.
Welcome to Goat Wisdom, Check the inside of her eyelids and see what color they are as per FAMACHE chart pink is good white could mean a worm load. I would give her 1cc per 18lbs of Penn G sq and worm her if needed which it sounds like she does Ivermetin or its generic 6cc. If you have red cell I would give them 5cc every day for a week and once a week after that for 3 more weeks and worm them again in 6 weeks. Begin using DE in your feed that seems to really be helping my program.
