    I have a four week old kid that has smelly toothpaste-like yellow poo. I started everyone on their preventitive Sulmet today (her included) to me this sounds like E-Coli, what do you think?? And what is the treatment for E-Coli?

    Scour halt is suppose to work on e-coli other than that I really dont know. Wish I could be of more help.

    Do you know if I can get Scour Halt at Tractor Supply? I have been meaning to order it but just haven't gotten around to it (go figure!)

    i posted a few days ago about a baby with the same thing. She is doing better now, but now i have a buck kid with the same thing. he will be two weeks on monday. i thought the only treatment for e-coli was antibiotics. And then i found this stuff at the farm store i work it called dexamycin its not labeled for goats (only cows sheep pigs) but it says it treats e-coli in those anumals. So im wondering if its alright for goats? Has anyone ever heard of it?

    No more runny poo, I didn't give her anything other that the Sulmet and quite a bit of dried blackberry leaves which she loves. I'll see how she is tomorrow though..

    ok, the name just strikes me as possibly derrived from the same active ingredient in LA 200 and Biomycin

    yea i was thinking the same thing too stacey. there is also a package labeled teramycin, same name as the eye ointment but i havnt had enough down time to read that one yet. My favorite thing to do when were slow at work i go find a product to read about, or a book about one animal or another.

    I thought that Sulmet helped with E COli although I don't suppose it is a powerful treatment.
    I took the opportunity to dry and bag some blackberry leaves befor the snows started again. I glad that I have something to help if I need it - and it's FREE!
