    Glad she is doing better. I was going to suggest dyne, but see you are already using it. Are you giving it 3x a day?
    We started a doe on it, a couple months ago we had some (nice looking) bad hay. Made some of the goats very ill. One doe has had a time recovering, just harder for her to gain weight. She is looking much better now.

    30ml orally. Won't touch it if on food & she avoids me like the plague, so only catch her once a day.

    She looks thin again. Need to weigh her.
    I think I'm going to sell her off.

    Locked her up in the barn with some things for her to pick from. Most likely, I'll sell her once she looks decent again.

    Okay, so she's lost two pounds since stopping the Dyne. Dewormed again & refilled hay. Doesn't help much that the grass is poor and weedy.

    Really seems like something else is going on, but I can't think of what.
