I have 3 triplets that are almost completely weened and I wormed all of my goats this evening. How long should I keep Asia separate from her kids or is there a need to since they also got wormed? Another question....one of her kids has had diarrhea for a few days on and off...I figured it was most likely worms, but what else could it be? She is still eating and acting perfectly normal.

Because of the worming you do not need to keep kids seperated from mom,I think that is what you are asking,the diarrhea ,if you can take a same to the vet and get a decal done,this could be from change in diet ,such as increased grain or lush grass,but I would highly suspect coccidiosis ,this is brought on by stress,exspeciAly weaning,if cant get fecal treat with dimethox ,or baycox

What did you treat them with and at what dosage? There is no withdraw time for nursing with any dewormer. I would suspect coccidia with the diarrhea but a fecal test would verify that.
