My doeling has had this for about 5 days. It is yellow and it is like a paste. What is wrong? Someone told me to give her probiotics but i feel like there is something else i should be doing. She is drinking milk and playing like a normal kid should doe and is nibling on hay and grain and drinking some water. Could it be coccidiosis? No other goats are having this problem.

yellow poop could mean milk scours...what is she drinking and how much?

from goat link

*Watery and yellowish Scours - With mucus or blood at times, low grade fever, caused by oocysts. Effects 1 to 4 week old kids usually (they are susceptible until they become functional ruminants): It could be:Cryptosporidiosis

*White or light yellow Scours--Acute. Sour odor, can look curdled. Usually affects newborns to 4 weeks old, but most commonly seen in babies younger than 2 weeks old. : Foul smell, looks as though it contains unclotted blood and sometimes tissue and mucus. Milk Scoursfrom too much milk or milk replacer.

She is at the right age for Cocci...I would have a fecal done if you can or begin treatment with a sulfa drug..such as Sulmet or albon.. 3 cc pepto and probios to help her tummy..

The only thing she has on the list is pasty yellow poop. I am starting to feed a grain with a coccidiostat in it but she doesnt eat that much yet

It is better to just treat for cocci with a sulfa drug...the medicated feed is hard to be sure they are getting what they need plus it can create a resistance to the drug.

I would give her 3cc pepto,3 cc c d antitoxin and treat for a possible bacteria infection with 1 1/2 cc neomycin twice a day for three days and see how she does...have a fecal done to confirm cocci and treat with Sulmet, albon or Baycox..
