Goats/billy goat poop

Question
billy goat poop is green and looks like dog poop somedays. I someday it on his tail. We just wormed him  3 days ago hoping that would take care of the problem. With a pellet wormer from Tractor Supply. What should i do?

Answer
How old is this goat?  If under 9 months this could be coccidiosis but generally this is more of a diarrhea than dog poop.  What feed/hay is he on?  Pellet wormers do not work well.  Is he otherwise eating and drinking okay?  Let me know and I will get back to you with more information - thanks - Donna
