Yes I will definatly follow up with probios! Hopefully he'll make it! I couldn't get anything yesterday TSC was closed, hopefully it isn't too late :( Please pray that he recovers.

give everyone who has signs a dose, one dose should do it for them

but for the one who is worse off give a second shot 24 hours later at half the dose of the first shot. Unless you see improvement. Doing it this way will keep the antibiotic in his system longer and help him fight it.

yogurt or probios would be good as already suggested.

I just talked to a breeder friend and she doesn't like La200 (Duramycin) and said she likes Naxell (sp?) better soo.....

Darn it! I was going to go pick up Azriel today (my friend is giving me, for a trade) but I didn't want to bring her home to sickness!

How do you know it is Pneumonia? Are the lungs rattling? Runny nose and cough is not a reason to treat with a antibiotic. I assume that there is more to it. Do any have a temp?

I had the same thing run thru my herd awhile back when I got new goats and everyone got a shot and some got a shot the second day. Everyone got better thankfully. Anybody weezing I would think about doing a second shot tomorrow. That is what I did.
