I had runny stools go through my kids a few weeks ago. A couple never got sick but everyone responded well to the Sulmet I gave them. I am out of Sulmet and can't find it. I have 2 that have runny/ soft stools. I have penicillin but am unsure of dosage/route. Or any other ideas?

I would only use antibiotics if there is infection or fever...For runny poo I give pepto to help dry and sooth but you still need to know why they are runny...too much grain, or graze? worm load or cocci again...

how long has it been since treatment? last time I used Sulmet it didn't works for me..I ordered Baybox to help clear my problem... Dimethox is another OTC cocci treatment ....

I think it is time to have a fecal test done to include coccidia. You should always find out why you have diarrhea or soft stool.

The Pepto is just a bandaid. You need to figure out the problem.
