Question
Both my fainting goats have brown diarrhea. It is not real dark and is not green. One is 4 mths old, the other 1 1/2 years. What is best treatments? They are up moving and eating. Thanks.

Answer
Sorry for the delay. This is either just digestive upset or bacterial digestive infection. Would start with peptobismol at one half cup per 50 pounds body weight every four hours. I am not near internet often enough currently so please call if you need to 3607428310
