    this is what I could find -

    Respiratory - Excenel at 1.5 times the cattle dose daily for 3-5 days, or Nuflor at 1.5 times the cattle dose alternating days for 3 doses, or Penicillin G at 1cc per 20-50 # daily for 3-5 days.

    It was on http://www.showgoatpage.com/fourfront/tips.html

    Thanks Allison. I managed to get the dosage from a friend. I couldn't get ahold of my vet.

    I have a kid who I thought had cocci, but now I think it's ecoli. He started off with the runs along with his brother early sunday morning before the show. I dosed them with albon and pepto and left for the show. After the show his brother was ok, but he still had the runs like crazy. So I gave him more pepto, banamine and went to bed. This morning when I went out he still had the runs as loose as ever along with one of the does we brought to the show. I gave them pepto all day with no change in either of them. I started the doe on sulmet in case this cocci was resistant to the albon. Then it got to the point today that the boy was crying every time he would poo. The poo was loose watery yellow. I gave him the excenel and he didn't even flinch. He was laying there moaning so I took him in the house expecting the worst and he perked right up. I gave him some sq fluids and put him back out with mom. Hopefully he continues to improve.
