My little Nigerian dwarf doe got into the chicken scratch and has the runs now, he is about 2 months prego and I am scared, is she hurt? Will it just pass through her system? I'm new to goats!

Give her a little scourhalt, three or four pumps. I'm sure she will get over it soon and be just fine

She should pass it however I would give her some milk of magnesia to help her get rid of it and settle her rumen. Dosage is 15ccs per 60lbs.

Our local feed store only has save-a-calf brand scour milk replacer, is anyone familiar with this brand for goats? And might this be ok to use?

If she were mine, I would give her B Complex either orally or injectable and baking soda drench or bolus to de-acidify her rumen and make sure she doesn't head into acidosis or polio.

The Milk Of Magnesia is already de-acidifying her rumen. It's actually more alkaline than soda.
