    I have a 2 year old alpine girl who is having pudding consistency poop the last 2 days. She previously had clumpy poo and I suspected a worm overload (also had pale pink eyelids) so i treated with cydectin 16 days ago and then gave her another round 6 days ago. She’s is acting fine and still eating and running around with the others. I’m not sure where to go from here. Advice appreciated. Vet is closed for the weekend here.

    Certainly giving probiotics and a B Complex shot is always good. You really need a fecal done to the include coccidia. If you don't know what parasite she has, you may be treating with the wrong dewormer.

    What color is her poop? I agree she need probiotics. Help rebalance her rumen flora. No grain while loose..hay, alfalfa and browse foods are fine. Make sure she is staying hydrated

    Your goat is dehydrated. Everything everyone else said. During the summer and or if goats are degraded we do a few things.
    1. (Always during summer) electrolytes in water
    2. (When dehydrated) 1 tsp. molasses in water per bucket
    3. All else fails 5oz of pepto bismal

    @Mandyoh37 - any changes with your goat?

    MeadowMist Laboratory is a really great service where you can mail fecal samples for issues like this.

    Did you use the Cattle Cydectin or Sheep? And what was the dosing use?

    Has her FAMACHA score improved?
