Treating a Six Week Old Goat for Diarrhea

He has had diarrhea for 3 days now. I can't get it to stop. What should I do? Can he have white rice?

It could be the symptom of something serious, so call the vet.

He has scours. Go to the feed store and get him the electrolyte packet (you mix it with water) for goats. He should also still be on mothers milk--if he isn't get some milk packets as well. Scours can kill a goat, sheep, cow or horse.

Make sure he is well hydrated, get some Kao-lin Pectic from a feed place. If it still persists, go to the vet.

Most likely it has the scours. Go to the feed store and get the electrolites for goats (in a bag which you mix with water) and goat milk replacer. Put the kid on this until it has stopped.
