Earlier today she was fine ran around ate her feed played. But when i got home from school she and the others were going to bed, it was about 6 pm, and she had scours on her legs a little and her eyes are pale. She's about 5 months old but really tiny, she's supposed to be a mostly boer and she's about 30 lbs but she's not skinny shes just little.

I wormed her with valbazen, gave her some electrolytes, red cell, power punch, and 5cc apple cider vinegar with 10cc of water instead of the full dose because of her size. Then a while later i went back out and she was standing facing the corner of the shelter. I've heard facing the corner is a sign of something but i couldn't find the threads about it.

There isn't a vet in our area that does goats the closest one is a 2 hour drive so i dont think ill be able to talk my parents into it. :( Does anyone have a possible diagnosis? Im going to give her a b shot tomorrow. Is there anything else i can do?

I have always used the liquid and it is 1cc per 5 lbs the first day and 1cc per 10 lbs days 2-5 for both.

Use one or the other. Not both at the same time. Those are both meds for coccidia.

Is it given under the skin? Or orally? If under the skin should i give it in the shoulder skin part like the b shots or somewhere else? I just learned to give shots a week ago and im still learning. :) thank you.
