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?

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..

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!
