    The lady we bought her from didn't tell us, but I presume she is at least 3- 3&1/2 months, she started acting like this about 3 weeks ago, other symptoms are strained breathing, unbalanced, and generally tired, I gave rice with dietemacious earth to see if she had worms, and I put electrytes in her water for nutrition, she is doing slightly better but is still sick,

    There are certain diseases such as Mareks, that can cause issues with immunity to common illnesses. Green droppings usually is a sign of not eating. Mareks can cause imbalance or lameness, wasting, or twisted neck.DE does not work as a wormer since it is useless when wet. Good wormers include Valbazen, SafeGuard Liquid Goat Wormer, or Wazine (which only treats roundworms.) Coccidiosis can still be a threat at that age, especially since she is on new ground, and it can cause symptoms of lethargy, diarrhea or blood in droppings, hunched posture, and poor appetite. If you think that could be a problem, get some Corid liquid or powder. Dosage is 2 tsp of the liquid, or 1.5 tsp of the powder per gallon of water for 5 days.

    You can give 1/4 ml or cc per pound once and repeat 10 days for common worms, or give it 5 days in a row for hard to get worms such as capillaria or gapeworm.
