Hi goat friends!
My 2 year old Pearl has coccidia 3750 egg count on fecal, and on checking her eyelid FAMACHA style (I'm not certified) it looks like a #2, meaning anemia. She is nursing a 6-wk-old kid. They both look and act very healthy. I have given her Baycox (Toltrazuril) and will also do an herb treatment on her. Do I need to address the anemia, and what is the best/easiest way? Red Cell? B12 injection? Iron injection?

The red cell is helpful, but in my experience the injectable iron works much faster and since she is nursing, I wouldn’t want to chance it. Typically I give a shot of vitamin b complex along with the iron shot.

Thank you, I saw that reaction possibility with iron injection, so I'm not too keen on doing it. I thought I would have to have epinephrine on hand as a shot to counteract reactions, in what form/dose would Benadryl be adequate?

Epinephrine is best (1 ccper 100#) but Benadryl is close second. I like liquid for easy dosing. At least 20 cc and keep the bottle handy ;)
