Started she was hanging back. Came home she was flat out in barn head back couldn't stand. Brought her in house. 3-4 days I did penicillin thiamine 4 times a day she was eating doin almost good. Ran out of thiamine went to vet he said take her off penicillin put her on nuflor he did fecal showed coccidiosis. As my eyes rolled he gave her corrid. 2 days later on vet meds she is worse. I gave her baycox red cell trying to give electrolytes(as much as she can) she sits up when propped. I also did beer and baking soda yesterday She has diarrhea

I would also get her temp. 101.5-103.5 is normal range.
How long has she been down?
What does her poop look like.
Check her lower inner lids for color
Is she getting fluids?
What foods is she eating currently?

Sorry I also do not have cell service/internet inside my house. I'm gonna give a list of what she has had.
12-5 ivermectin 1ml 12-15 iverm.1ml

Did fecal showed coccidiosis he gave nuflor30mg once daily thiamine 50mg 1ml twice daily @ 13 ml a day for 3 days.temp at 101-103. Also he said switch to cydexin after the corrid.
1-3 completely off feed and liquid. Grinding teeth. I gave 9ml baycox nuflor thiamine red cell nutri drench probios later tht day she was extremely weak and not holding head up I gave 2ml Cydectin and pushed electrolytes
1-4 still no food/water and now diarrhea. Did red cell nutri drench & thiamine. Gave baking soda waited couple hours=nothing gave Yuengling room temp beer=nothing. Massage her belly all day.
1-5 red cell vit b complex (10g thiamine) 5ml probios nutri drench also was able to steal some cud from a healthy goat
1-6 2pumps nutri drench 5ml vit b complex 6ml red cell she ate a small bowl of grass and a small amount of hay had a lot of diarrhea. I guess my question is I have gave her so much her tummy is suffering can it mend with time while I wait is there anything else I need to do. I love my girls.

Did she receive corid? How much? When?

She needs at least 500mg thiamine every 6 hours round the clock. If you have b complex check what the back says, most is 100mg/ml so I would give 5cc of it. Again, every 6 hours round the clock.

Poor thing has had so many meds.

This vet....:imsorry:

Post the label of your vitamin B. If it only has 10g you must go out and buy some fortified b complex (not b12) that is stronger.

Good advice by all.

I would give 12 cc’s of fortified vit b complex.
Overdosing is OK, they will pee out what they don’t need.


Massage left side of tummy (rumen). Walk the goat, no grain just hay.

ruminant probiotics or cud transfer.

Also, Bring in hay, alfalfa, leaves..pine, cedar, vines...any safe natural browse you can gather. The more choices she has the better chance of her eating and getting her rumen going.
