All things said here are for information purposes and not because I am looking for sympathy or treatment options/oppions. 2 weeks ago Presto and Hans both had diarreah. Since it has been SO WET and I had a case of cocci here 2 years ago I started them both on sulmet. Presto cleared up but Hans did not. He continued to get worse. Had watery diarreah and was lethargic and getting skinny (he had been my chunker). Last weekend we reached up into the high 90's to 100 degrees. THis was like a 30 degree jump in temp. On Saturday June 7th Hans died from complications (dispite our best efforts and even mouth to mouth by my brother) of something I do not know, cocci? enterotoxemia? heat? dehydration? I will never know. It was a tragic night and I rather not talk about it. On Tuesday I woke up to find Rhythm with serious diarreah. I started to phone vets and one called me back while I was at work. I ran home, picked him up (he was already looking seriously bad). Got to the vets and he started him on SQ fluids. Gave him banamine. CHecked his temp 104.3 (remember it is like 97* out) so he said to start him on pen just in case. I had brought in a fecal sample which he ran while I waited and the vet said "your little guy is loaded with coccidia" He put him on Albon for 9 days (tablets) and strongly suggested Corid in their water every 3 months. This vet knows goats and said if used properly will not cause goat polio - I trust him. In 2 days Rhythm was back to his old self and pooping berries. WHen Rhythm was diagnosed I put all the kids on Sulmet. Cadence is still looking bloated (a sign of cocci) but everyone else is looking good. Kitten had been bloated looking but is fine now Sweet pea started to poop soft stools and finaly my Corid arrived yesterday. With direction I doubled the dosage of the corid and added flavoring to the water. In only a couple hours they had drank all the treated water. I provided clean fresh water for the rest of the day. I will repeat this treated water for the next 4 more days as directed. Still not out of the woods with everyone but I am optimistic. It does help that the weather finally broke on Tuesday night. This has been what is on my mind each day and I needed to just take care of it and then move on. But I wanted to point out some very important things about cocci that I learned 1) Diarreah can be ALL colors. I had, yellow, light brown, watery to clear, brown, green 2) kids can become bloated looking 3) some will have sudden diarreah and go down fast others can hang on longer. 4) there are way to many miss conceptions out there about cocci and the drugs to treat it. I hope this helps someone. I will let you know any further details as I learn.
