    I picked up a new doe and her doeling, who is about 6 weeks old, on Sunday. They were both sweet and happy and healthy, only about a 20 minute ride home so not super stressful. Late in the day Sunday I noticed mama had clumpy poop, so I gave her probios because that's what always helps my...

    Hello, I have 2 does and three kids(4 months olds) that are being dam raised. I've had the does in a dry lot pen since February along with the kids when they were born in March. I have been feeding them grain and alfalfa. I'm trying to introduce them to our pasture which is mostly weeds(...

    I had been fighting off Coccidia in one of my young bucks. Thankfully it cleared but now he has a bit of dried poop stuck on the back of his legs and tail. I was debating bringing him inside and giving him a warm bath and using a soft soap to try to get it off. Or am I better off trimming it...

    I have a buck that is about 1 1/2 and he has had dark green scours for a couple days. He’s acting perfectly fine I have been leaving electrolytes our for him but he won’t drink it at all. No fever either just the scours is the only odd thing. This is my first year in goat raising so I’m kind of...

    He started to get scours yesterday, but he had quite a bit of alfalfa that day, so I gave him 5 cc goats prefer probiotics. This morning, he still had scours, so i gave him 10 cc of Jumpstart probiotics. I pulled feed from him this evening, and with each probiotics dose i gave him 24 cc of water...

    My eight week old doe has had scours for a few days. I've been doing my best to keep her clean and dry, but her vulva is irritated and bleeding a bit from constant exposure to the diarrhea and from frequent washing. I can't imagine this is comfortable. Is there anything I can do to protect that...

    Hello All! I have two little bucklings I acquired from a dairy farmer Wednesday of last week. One is a Saanen (Waylon) and the other is an Alpine (Lucius). Waylon came to me with bloody, highlighter-yellow scours, but that has since cleared up since he has been on the milk replacer. I feed...

    Hi! One of the goat kids I'm taking care of has diarrhea. I was hoping for some help diagnosing. She had the diarrhea for 2 days last week before it disappeared. I kept an eye on it but wasn't too concerned because she was acting normal, keeping up with the heard and grazing. I figured she got...

    HI! I have this precious new kid who has a bit of a poop problem. It's a normal color but the "berries" are clumped together. When we first got him there was also an orange mucous involved but that has subsided. We got him at 15 days old, now he's 1 month and 1 day. He's a Nigerian Dwarf wether...

    I'm back with another question and have searched through the past threads trying to find an answer. Alas, there's not one that closely relates to what we've got going on at the moment. Unless I didn't search far enough back or in the wrong category. :? This is our first go round with goats...

    Lady is not doing well. She is severely anemic, is losing weight, and her poops have been fluctuating from normal to pudding consistency. Tonight, her poop is more liquid than solid. Although we have not had a fecal done on her recently, another of our goats just got results back showing high...

    I have an eight week old Nigerian Dwarf Buckling who started getting diarrhea today. He was disbudded at 3 weeks. He started getting scurs recently so I had him disbudded again yesterday. The second time was much more stressful on him. He has been very healthy up to this point and has had his...

    We got the boys (3 ND's/9wks old) home yesterday afternoon. They also came with bad scours/diarrhea. One has cleared up overnight, the 2nd one is still runny, & the 3rd one is VERY runny. Poop is all standard brown in color. I have cleaned up all rear ends to watch & prevent fly issues...

    I have a 10 year old Nigerian Dwarf doe that has been battling scours off and on for over a year. At first she had clumped poop, then pudding. She has been on steroids but that treatment did not work long term. After that failure, it was suggested that I give her probiotics in yogurt twice a...

    I've got a doe that just kidded a little over a week ago. I've been noticing some loose stool in the lot, but today it was wet. Real light brown borderline reddish brown. She's got two healthy bucklings on her growing like weeds. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    My 4&1/2 week old buck and 1&1/2 year old doe both have scours. I've only had them for about 2 weeks. They are from different places. They both had normal poop when I got them. I'm (obviously) a novice goat owner. I honestly thought that they were like pigs and I could feed them slop! I DIDN'T...
