We just dewormed her and her Momma yesterday and today she has diarrhea. She is still jumping and playing but I am worried.
Thank you!!What dewormer(s) did you use and at what dosage? Was a fecal done on either the doe or kid? How much each do the doe and kid weigh? What is the actual rectal temperature of the kid? Is the kid being dam or bottle raised?
What symptoms appeared, if any, that indicated the doe and especially the kid needed to be dewormed?
P.S. Welcome to The Goat Spot
I'm sorry I missed this message! Ivermectin was given orally as directed by vet over the phone. She is doing well but now she has a small bald spot on her shoulder.......Great job checking the eyelids for anemia! Did you give the Ivermectin injected or orally?
At 17 days the anemia is not caused by stomach parasites. It's probably lice but it could be coccidia. Check closely parting the fur for lice. Using a flashlights helps.
Okay.....so we saw Dr Kaye at Dowlen Rd Vet! About 15 min drive for us and it was great! So our little girl does not have ring worm (did not know they use a black light to check that and if it glows it is ringworm) Dr K said the area had "thickened" so more than likely it is a trauma, such as, getting headed butted or pushed into a stick. She gave us some topical to rub on the area. She also did a fecal and she confirmed worms but no coccidia! (Yay). She said the diarrhea is most likely due to worms and gave us a dewormer that she prefer but she also like Ivermectin Injectable, given by mouth to goats. She says she is NOT a goat expert but has some working knowledge and will gladly work with us, even making farm calls! All our goats are doing well and our biggest problem now is this wet, muddy ground........besides their new animal cracker addiction.......which has made all of them, except one, super friendly! Stable is good!What did the vet say?
