Dosage for prohibit is 4 cc per 100 pounds. Ivomectin injectable is 1 cc per 40 pounds injected or 1 cc per 33 pounds oral.

Since he's had both dewormers he needs time for them to work. If he is anemic you need to address the anemia with iron source. Red cell(6 ccper 100 pounds once a day for a weeknthen once a week until famacha improves) or injectable iron 4 cc per 100 pounds sub q same frequency as red cell. Do not do both..choose one. Injectable iron as been known to cause a reaction..be prepared with epinephrine (1 cc per 100 pounds IM) or a larger 20-30cc dose of Benadryl liquid..and more on the ready)
He will also need b 12 or b complex
High protien feed and browse food. It is also helpful to give 30 cc of a 50/50 mix of apple cider vinegar and water once a day to speed recovery.
Make sure he eats and stays hydrated.

Best wishes

Is he drinking? It is crucial that he stays hydrated. How much does he weigh?

If he is still having diarrhea then I would give SpectoGard Scour-Chek. Dosage is 6 ml a day for 3 days.

Also give Probiotics twice a day (we mix the powder with water and drench it). Give it a couple hours after you give the scour chek, not at the same time.

You can also try giving 10-20 ml of liquid Pepto Bismol every 4-6 hours to help with scours.

What is his temperature?

What is his FAMACHA score? https://web.uri.edu/sheepngoat/files/FAMACHA-Scoring_Final2.pdf
