Well, from my extremely recent experiences, I think it's possible they are copper deficient, or they may have coccidiosis, which is a parasite but not a worm. If so, the best thing to.do.is take a fecal sample to.the vet and he will.tell you if that is the case.
Welcome to the forum by the way, and congratulations on your goats!
I sure you will love them.
It certainly never hurts to take a fecal sample in to be sure. But that is up to you and you are the one physically looking at your goats. Sometimes we can't say things for sure over the internet because we aren't physically looking at the goats.
Those ARE the signs that the would have it. Until.it's mote advancd, I think that's all they'll show, rough coats an space eyelids.
If they are rely pale, you. Need to get them checked right away. Young kids are very disreputable to coccidiosis.
I agree..this time of year Cocci is very heavy....any vet can do a fecal...it usually does not cost much...but I think its important enough to do..Cocci is not to be messed with....
OTC stuff to use is Sulmet and Dimethox...I would no get Corid...the vets always say COrid..but its a thiamine inhibotor and can cause Goat polio...Many on this sight have lost kids to polio after using corid...Many use it with no issues but I would not chance it..too risky My choice for cocci now is Baycox but it needs to be ordered...horseprerace.com...works like a dream..
Best wishes : )
Oops, I didn't know I wrote "disreputable" ! I meant to say susceptible! I'm using a kindle, and it has word suggestions, and if you don't spell something just right, it will substitute what it thinks you mean.
Yesi t can be used on young kids...they usually dont need it younger than 3 weeks..Im not sure about Bred Does..Ill look some stuff up, seeif I cant find something..Yes the one dose is Awesome : ) and they dont seem to mind....when I used Sulmet..some would go off spitting and couphing while others acted like I just poisoned them with acid lol
