Re: GOATS GETTING SKINNY
I agree with a lot of what you have been told. Not all parasites cause anemia. And then of course there are non symptom forms of cocci as well as other parasites that don't cause diarrhea or other typical symptoms. A fecal would probably be most helpful. If you would prefer to just dose them aggressively then I would recommend getting corrid and doing 1 mL or CC per 3 lbs or weight for 5 days in a row to treat cocci. Then valbazen at 1 mL or cc per 11 lbs for 3 days in a row. But, neither of those is cheap. And it's a lot of medication to administer. So, when it's all said and done a fecal would probably be easier. So at least a few goats for a solid diagnosis.
Let us know what you decide and that the results of your fecals are!
