    The best thing to do would be to have a vet look at the poop. Do you have Corid powder or liquid? You might want to treat again with Corid, but this time give it as an oral drench.

    She used Corid powder. How do you do a drench ?

    If she used Corid in her drinking water, she may not have consumed enough of the water to get a proper dose. Do you know what strength she used?

    It involves mixing 1/2 teaspoon with enough water to make a *total* of 10ml water and powder. That 10ml will have 270mg amprolium and the dose for her would be 0.34 ml per pound orally once a day. When she was treated, how much powder per gallon was used? Many people used to think the powder dose was 1/2 teaspoon per gallon, but it's actually no less than 1.5 teaspoons per gallon.

    That's what I would have done, but if they aren't drinking enough, they won't get enough medication. Another thing she could try is worming with something like Safeguard or Valbazen.
