With any loose pudding type to watery runs I give C D Antitoxin ...What color is the poop? if its greenish its dietary, if its black it can be Cocci and it will have a smell...a fecal will determine if cocci..
For dietary runs..pepto helps dry them up, Probios to help restore flora, pull grain and feed hay only until dry
Cocci obviously needs treatment...Corid is a thiamine inhibator and can cause Goat Polio...but if your buck is sick with cocci and its all you can find...follow very carefully the directions and follow up with Fortified B complex after each dose to help prevent polio...watch him carful for signsof polio..if he has signs he will need straight Thiamine which is RX. here is a article to help you know what sogns to look for

Actually, you would want to do the B Complex after treatment since that is how Corid works. Most of the time, you don't even have to give B Complex. Just keep a close eye on him if you do use the corid.
