Going to town to get a fecal test.. but wondering what to use to treat if they do have coccidia.

I have it down to Dimethox and Albon, but I am not for sure what Dimethox is, so here is a link to what I found when I searched "Dimethox" on tractor supply

http://www.tractorsupply.com/en/store/dmso-16-oz - I really don't think that is it.

I am going to buy some to keep but I will need to get something today to treat them with, if that is what she has... Has any one ever used Albon ? that is what my vet gives me.. pill form.

Dimethox and Albon is the same medication..Ive not used either one...but many have said they have good success with it..


to keep Cocci treatment on hand..I would order Baycox from horseprerace.com ..its a much better cocci treatment ..: )

Turns out she doesnt have cocci... what does every one like to keep on stock? And how long does it last.

Baycox is a good choice...horseprerace.com I order the 200ML bottle and treatment is 1 cc per 5# I do it once at three weeks then again in 10 days IF its needed....then only as needed
We just learned it needs to be in the frig after opening..:) I buy mine before kidding season so Im ready

Yes, that is fine. I dose at 1cc per 5 lbs on the first day and 1cc per 10 lbs days 2-5. But others dose at a higher dose. If your vet is a good goat vet, I would ask your vet what dosage for your area.
