    Coccidia in lambs

    I treated my lambs with Toltrazuril about a month ago and their poop firmed up. I just noticed today one has diarrhea again. She’s still eating and drinking and acting normal. I’m assuming it’s coccidia again since that’s what showed up on my fecal a month ago. I treated everyone with...

    Coccidia in lambs

    Thank you for all the advice! I will treat all the lambs and report back on how they are doings. The one with loose stool isn’t that bad yet. Actually I think it had firmed up a bit even without treating so I think I am catching it early on. And maybe part of the issue is diet change as I...

    Coccidia in lambs

    I posted this in another string, but wasn't sure if anyone would see it. I have 3 adult sheep, 2 adult goats, and 4 4H lambs. They are all housed together on pasture with the 4H lambs separated at night and for feeding. 1 of the 4H lambs has loose stool. Fecal showed coccidia at +++ (great...

    vomit or diarrhea?

    My lambs are doing well now! No more mystery fluids in the barn. We have two batches of lambs from two different farms (two from each farm). They are all together with our regular herd now. One of our newest lambs has loose stool so I sent in a fecal and she has coccidia at +++, so I plan to...

    vomit or diarrhea?

    Yeah you are probably right. Their hay is nicely green so maybe it’s just regurgitation. These guys are younger than the ones we got last year and I’m super paranoid! Thanks for your input!

    vomit or diarrhea?

    Do you think I should keep increasing the grain slowly?

    vomit or diarrhea?

    Maybe they chocked then and threw up? I’ve seen them cough here and there. I keep trying to witness them poop but no luck so far.

    vomit or diarrhea?

    They are 6 weeks and 7.5 weeks. Both were weaned prior to us taking them and eating grain and hay free choice.

    vomit or diarrhea?

    We got lambs for 4H on Saturday. We have the 2 lambs penned together inside our small barn while they acclimate. I noticed yesterday that one has a smelly watery green substance on her back. I also noticed the same substance in the pen on the bedding this am. There was also at least one fresh...

    Copper bolus question

    My goats don’t like goat minerals and will only eat sheep minerals. I have tried different brands and no luck. They eat hay and a handful of grain a couple times a week. I add minerals to the grain when I give it but one goat has some coat fading. I gave him a kid size copper bolus (he’s a 40...

    Goat with teeth knocked out?

    Just wanted to post another update! My little goat is doing great. He’s eating normally and living with the rest of the herd full time now. I’m in Michigan and we had terrible cold weather last week. -35 with the wind chill. I had to baby him a bit and bring him inside for more warm ups than...
