QUESTION: Hi Donna
 Update so far on Harley my goat
Seems to be doing a lot better
He is running around playing seems like he's having a grand old time and his poop seems a lot firm
The parasite I could not remember is called:
parasites called coccidia  !!!
WHat a pain it is trying to break down this amprolium in cc dose
Fo his coccidia
He is only 12 lbs
Anyway I'll keep you updated

Freddy

Answer
Thanks for the update.  Every goat has coccidia in its poop and generally it does not bother the goat - if the poop becomes green diarrhea then it should be treated.  We use Corid (a powder) or Sulmet (a liquid) and these work much better and easier than amprolium.  So doubt the coccidia is doing anything to his system without the diarrhea.  So glad he is doing well, it is the antibiotics and all your care - hope this helps - Donna
