    Could she possibly have coccidosis? Bloody stool is NOT always present with coccidosis. I'd treat with corid which is amprollium brand's names can be corid or amprol. Symptoms are sleepy lethergic off the feed puffed up bloody stool may or may NOT be present.if she has these symptoms I'd treat asap. Hope this helps. Best wishes
