    Re: Seemingly incurable coccidia- and a rant

    Glad to hear the good news of BERRIES! :thumb: :stars: Funny when you get excited over little things like that. lol

    I would definitely keep him on the gastricalm for a few more days and maybe add a some more EZ Pels to his diet to keep his Zinc levels up.

    Sorry I didn't answer your call, I was busy driving and I try not to answer calls when I'm driving. Especially when I have a trailer full of bucks. :sick: All the goats are now officially at the new place! :dance:

    And your welcome! I will pray the surgery goes quick and easy for you as well as the recovery. :pray: :hi5:

    Wow, this is quite a thread! I'm shaking my head over the rudeness of the breeder, if they were wiping poopy butts at pick-up time, they know darn well the kids were not well. And to place the blame on you, it just boogles my mind!

    So happy for your goat, and I pray that he continues to improve!

    I am glad that you baby is doing better. Please keep a good weather eye on him and give him the care he needs, he provides joy in your life along with his herd mates and needs all of the care you provide. Keep providing joy for each other. Fred V.

    Re: Seemingly incurable coccidia- and a rant ...FINAL UPDATE

    This thread is pretty old now- but I just wanted to update- while still smaller than the other buckling we have that shares his birthdate- he has really come around full circle I just had to show you all!

    Here he is when we got him in May- you cant really get the idea of how skinny with all of his hair
    [​IMG]

    Here he is as of yesterday- he has been gaining weight slowly (he was a rack of bones through this whole ordeal) - and his coat looks so much healthier now! :leap:

    He thinks so :roll:
    He's still a bit small I think yet to actually get the job done- but hopefully in another month or two he will be ready to get down to business- he's got a full dance card :wink:

    I am really glad he is doing better and he looks GREAT. Congratulations on a job well done.

    Don't ever think they are to small to get the job done. Where there is a will there is a way.
