    Well- the runs have returned here. I did buy the DiMethox. Is it safe to give it to all the kids right after I have just finished on Saturday doing 5 days of Corrid? I can't image what else is the issue. No grown up goats seem to be having an issue so I was just thinking of doing all the kids with a five day treatment. Thoughts?

    Yep, just start with the Dimethox. I'd go for a seven day treatment to really wipe things out

    Is it 5cc (undiluted) per kid no matter what their weight? Obviously Athna is much bigger than Azalea

    you can but not sure how that will effect the usefullness of the Dimethox -- but since you will be giving the Dimethox for 7 days it shouldnt be an issue. Never been in that situation before- sorry

    What color is the feces, is it green ?
    and do you have them on lush green spring grasses?

    If so.. it may be to rich for them..... and if so, pull them off of it ...gradually each day... let them graze for short times...pull them off ....increase....a little at a time ...until they are use to it...also feeding some grass hay, oat hay or straw type hay... may help tighten them...if it is lush grass doing it... just a thought? :shrug:

    this is the strangest thing- I have 4 kids that have had it on and off-one day runs, next day berries. Gus has the runs again tonight. All day he has been fine with berries. all of a sudden I see loose stool and then runs. Yet he drank a bottle is eating hay, has no fever, and other than whining because I seperated him is fine. Everyone is on day 2 of DiMenthox. I have one kid who hasn't had the runs yet. I have cleaned houses, water buckets, eating dishes, the manager, put DE down in the pen and the house. I can't think of what to do next.
