If you get them straightened out young enough you can reverse some or most of the stunting. I've had luck feeding several smaller feedings of medicated grain (to prevent cocci), BOSS and alfalfa pellets with as much hay as they could eat. I also add powdered probiotics to the grain to help the damaged intestines digest the feed.

However, an older goat may not respond. I rescued an 18 month old doe who had been bred and absorbed the kids due to heavy worm load. She should have been a nice big doe, but is only the size of a 6 month old. I got her healthy in all ways except for her size. She was bred as a 2 year old and had a nice set of twins by my standard sized Nubian buck and milked very well for me.
