At 3 days she wouldn't have coccidia so the toltrazuril wouldn't do any good. I would suspect E. Coli in this case. I would pick up some neomycin sulfate to treat the e coli with and give the kid the electrolytes like happybleats said. I would leave her with mom though, with calves it used to be a common practice to withhold milk while they had scours, but now they have found out all that does is make the calf worse. Without milk the calf gets weak and unable to fight off the e coli. Also, when you put the calf (goat) back on milk or with mom if you do it too quickly they will get the runs again.
