I own two wethered nubian kids. They are about 3.5-4 months old, and have been at my home for a little over a week. After noticing diarrhea, I contacted my vet and brought in stool samples. Both goats have "some of the worse coccidia (she has) ever seen." At first I thought "holy cow, I've ruined these babies" but the vet reassured me that some coccidia is a normal occurrence, however the stress of weaning and new environments can let it get out of control (my goats are SO isolated from all animals except for one roaming rooster, and their water source is fresh from the tap). I purchased electrolytes and Corid to treat, and have run into some confusion... How much Corid do I give them, and by which route?? My vet said I might have to force it into them due to poor taste, which sounds like drenching. Then I'm confused if I dilute the medication or not. Also, whether I use drenching or mix it in their water the directions call for like 50-100 gallons of water! I'm good with math, but these are TWO 25lb goats - the math comes out to like .3oz of medication. Is this correct? How and how much have others fed their kids? I'm so confused and REALLY don't want these goats to die. Dispite a severe diagnosis, they are lively (eating, walking, jumping, crying) - though I have been sitting with them for an hour and have not seen them drink any water. Ugh....HELP!
