On another goat forum, I posted a question about an 8 wk old Nigi doeling that developed scours over the weekend following a stressful day which included a weather change, a trip to the vet for a health cert., and having her ears tattooed. I first tried probios, but it got worse so I gave her a dose of a scour medication (terremycin tablets) that I had on hand. I later bought scour halt and gave her 2ml of that yesterday evening. The scours appear to be cleared up as she no longer has wet poo all over her rear. Now, I know that with most antibiotics you are supposed to continue the full course of Tx and not just stop when the symptoms end, but I am getting some very strongly worded advice from a member on that forum that I should stop the scour halt immediately. They are saying that it can halt peristalsis and kill the goat. I tried doing some independent research on this and most of the references I find just say to use it as the box directs (which is 10ml for a 10lb piglet or 2 ml for over 10lbs for 3 to 5 days). The only mention I found about peristalsis is that it can halt peristalsis in ADULT goats. So, now I am confused and I need a tie-breaker. I have one person who is seriously adamant that I should stop the scour halt NOW, even though she has only had 1 dose yesterday evening and 1 dose this morning, and I have other people saying that you should continue the antibiotics for the full course of Tx. So what is the right thing to do? I am stumped!
