i noticed a day or so ago Nina one of my Pygmy goats has diarrhea, I have 5 others and they are all fine. We’ve had to keep them all inside the barn for the past couple of days as it’s been below zero here . I live in rural Maine and don’t really have access to a vet. I was hoping some of you have suggestions of what I might do to help her

First, check her rectal temperature with a digital thermometer.
Inject Fortified B-Complex at 6cc/100lbs subcutaneously.
Check FAMACHA score for anemia.

Have you been feeding them extra or anything additional due to the cold weather and being cooped up inside?
Is she tame or fairly wild? Could it be the stress of being enclosed?

I have not given her anything xtra, she is tame but she has been in for a few days. I let her out this morning and noticed her stool was getting a lot firmer.
