I have been using a product for awhile now that works really good in helping clear up scouring and getting goats back on feed when they should be. I have not posted this before because there are certain illnesses that a goat should be off of feed during treatment. This is just for when goats can be eating but are not or have watery scours. It will help during treatment to get them back to making pellets. The product is called Gardion and it is off label from Equine medicines. Just 6 cc a day can set the PH of the Rumen just about where it should be. For one example. A 10 year old retired Nanny from my commercial herd came down with watery brown scours. The treatment was 6cc Gardion to reset Rumen. One 5cc shot of No Sting BioMycin (LA 200) the first night and 5 Grams of Vit B and Pro-bios Gel. By morning she was making cow patties. That day she was given a few apple slices with her morning hay and 6cc more of the Gardion after her nightly grain. 5G of the Vit B and Pro-bios Gel and in the morning she was already making clumpy manure with some pellets. That morning she was up on the gate wanting her treat and after feeding she was given 6cc more of the Gardion and then 5 Grams of the Blue cow Pro-Bios. In the morning she was back to making pellets. Gardion really helps take them from too Alkaline or Acidic to just about center of the spectrum where the PH of the gut should be. It also has been used on Anemic goats that were off feed while they were being treated. It really turns on the appetite. The product is used for horses with gut Lesions. It is made out of natural ingredients and is drenched. Some goats really don't like the taste but it helps get them straightened out pretty quick before they dehydrate.
I have recently used this product again off label for goats. The goat is around 9 years old. She went off feed and I noticed her berries got small. So I gave her 6cc of the Gardion to set the ph of her gut where I wanted it. The next day my husband said she "puked up slime". I did not see slime with the others so asked if she had looked bloated at all and he said not at all. So I go check and she is up eating her hay, drinking water, licking and pushing her little billy block and she ate 3/4 of her feed. Her demeanor all happy and better. I also gave her some Vit B gel with Pro-bios in it to get her rumen all set right again. All is good.
