Baycox is 1 cc per 5#...make sure to dose the correct amount....
I would also be giving C D Antitoxin...any time a goat has watery poop..it means the rumen is off....when the rumen is off toxins will begin to build in the gut...this can finish off a goat quickly...oral wormer kills the worms fast, worms dies and become toxic in the gut if they cant flush them out quick enough, CDAnti. helps with this..also a heavy load can cause bleed out...
keeping them hydrated, no feed,,hay and green leaves only until you see berries...daily Probios is needed to help restore flora
keep up the red cell daily for a week then once a week until recovered
I would switch wormers to Ivomec Plus..1 cc per 40# sub q....if they are heavy loaded..

best wishes

used to be 1 cc per 5# but they have new dose info...here it is : although I still think every 6 hours for day one then every 12 after that

New dosing information Directly from Colorado Serum:

No need to give this every 6 hours- the recommended dosing for goats is as follows:
kids under 6lbs give them 3ccs injected SQ every 12hours
kids 6-15lbs give them 5ccs injected SQ every 12 hours.
kids 15-20lbs: give them 10ccs injected SQ every 12 hours.
For adults- 80lb goat will get 20ccs injected SQ every 12 hours
CD Anti toxin is NOT the CDT toxoid vaccine and even if the baby has had the CDT vaccine this does not negate the need for the anti toxin. Use for baby goats who act hungry and refuse to eat even after an enema. This is also used for adult goats with enterotoxemia. CD Anti toxin has but one purpose, to rid the body of toxins in the gut, what it not used by the goat will be eliminated through the urine.

be sure to check for anemia and treat accordenly...
I would continue the cd antitoxin until he is up and going...
Thiamine or Fortified B complex is important when usng corid..especially in his weak state..
keep him hydrated
