I have 4 new bottle baby goats and I was told I need to give them this SpectoGard Scour-Chek due to Scours.
Once the product came in the mail it says it’s for pig scouts nothing on packaging says it’s for goats.
Online it says pigs, sheep, cattle and goats.
Can some one help me out with this.
Did I order the wrong product?

Thanks

@NorCal Goat Owner - how are your baby goats?

SpectoGuard is a great product, it treats scours caused by bacteria (ecoli & others). Usually you would see bacterial scours in goat kids less than 3 weeks old. Around 3-4 weeks, goat kids become susceptible to coccidia which can also cause scouring. For coccidia, you need different meds. And lastly, a bit later, 5-6 weeks, goat kids become susceptible to worms/intestinal parasites, and that's another whole different type of medication!
