Me and my sister bought a doe about a month a go and the lady said that she had a calusom bild up in her udder we treated it as mastited and it worked. But know she has a runny stool so we wormed her with safe gard the Orel past and that maid it worse so I thought she was just wormy so we give it a week and it showed a little improvement but not much. I don't know if it was a swap in food or what. But know it is back to bad. One of the people said pepto bismol and tried that and it helped but not for long. If any one knows what it could be or what I could do to help it that would be grate P.S she went from half grass hay and half alfalf to all grass hay thanks.
How much grain is she getting and how often? How runny is runny? Just soft and pasty or watery or somewhere in between? Safegard is not an effective wormer in many areas so you may need something different. It may also be coccidiosis, which requires a completely different type of treatment. How long has she had the diarrhea? If more than a couple of days, I would seriously consider getting a fecal test done by the vet so you know exactly what you are dealing with and can treat properly.
Goatmom thanks for replying she is getting noble goat with a three way sweet mix and she is getting a quart morning and night and that weigh at a pound. The poop is like pasty to a bit watry and then it goes back to pasty but it nevers gone to really really watry. It has gone on for to long but I thought that it was just stress.
Was she getting grain at her previous home or just hay? If she was not eating grain or was getting a very different type of grain, that is a lot to start her with if it a new diet for her. What color is the poop? Is there any blood in it?
I would decrease the grain a bit (maybe even by half if she was not getting it before) and add some electrolytes to her water. Some probios wouldn't hurt either. If you have blackberry or raspberry plants (we have them growing wild here), cut some canes for her and let her eat as much of that as she wants. The leaves are a natural cure for diarrhea and they don't mind the stickers...gobble them up! I would be inclined to worm her with some Ivomec and repeat in about ten days just to cover any eggs that might hatch after the first round of wormer.
Baking soda left out free choice is also good for settling the rumen and can be provided 24/7 year round along with loose minerals.
There is know blood in her poop it is a normal color but wen it is a little watry it is a little light. She was eating a noble goat mix at her old home so it shud not be a shock to her system and the same amount but only once a day. Thanks for the tip on the wormer I will try that.
If you upped it to twice a day, that would be double the amount she was getting and would certainly be enough to upset her system. Cut it back a bit and see if it helps but I would still worm just to be safe.
I would re-worm with a different wormer since safe guard does not work on most goats, Ivermectin is questionable and no longer works here in NE. I use Cydectin but that is just me, it works. Also if it were my animal I would give her a sq shot of Penn G 1cc per 15lbs of animal one time as well as probiotics for a couple of days in a row. That should get here straightened out on the scouring but I would watch her close and re-worm in 3 weeks if I thought there was a problem.
