I would have never thought, how much I'd appreciate a round-ish poo; I'm almost tempted to post a photo.

We've had a few of our older (5years+) Saanen crosses coming down with a wee diarrhea over the last few weeks. Yes, I know, you can have a wee diarrhea, if you're in Scotland. Nothing dramatic, so we thought we'd better get another dose of wormer into them 'next weekend'. Next weekend started with a dead goat and another of my nannies going down. Got the wormer in, and had her in intensive care all week (fluid, antibiotics, pain killer, vet, more pain killer, more fluid). And today there was an almost solid, roundish poo (you sure you don't want a photo?). Phew. No new cases, either - almost there. Hopefully. There's a few more tests outstanding, but early results from vet indicate that the worms were partly resistant to ivermec (oramec), and we'll do something else 'next weekend'.... (waiting for blood results).  Feeling like a dock (should have known, I have studied parasites!), must do better. Next weekend....

Hope, you're all doing better, keep worming!

Glad you got that one through it. I'm laughing at the way you put it. And why not have a photo? We've looked at pooey bums, dribbling vulvas and goodness knows what on here. A nice round poo is just one more thing.

Much preferable to a pond of poo  ;D
Good to hear things are looking promising Cristian  :fc:
