Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a veterinarian. It sounds like you may be having parasite resistance problems, where the medications you are using are no longer working. I do not know where you are located and have not examined your animals, so I cannot recommend which medications to switch to, but have some advice to help battle it. Parasite eggs are very resilient and hard to kill in the environment, therefor thorough cleaning is very important. If you can, dig out your goats pens and replace them with fresh dirt. Pressure wash all fence panels, mats, and feeders. Most importantly, try to keep all feed and forage up off the ground so they ingest fewer eggs, and make the feeders small enough that they don't want to jump on them, and are less likely to poop in their feeders. They should have access to good quality forage at all times. It also takes time to recover from a parasite burden, so they may need a little more time and care. I hope this has been helpful, let me know if you have more questions. If not, remember to rank my service above, or let me know what I can do to improve!

Ok, we have started with new bedding and They feed out of a container have been picking up all the dropping. We have given Cisco two lots of Q Drench over the last couple of months that was what our vet Recommend and we hard about To give it to him again
Large Animal Vet: Jill DVM, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

That's a good start. Q Drench has a good combination of medications in it. Hopefully the second round will do the charm. Let me know if you have any more questions!

Not sure, Cisco had a sieger of sorts yesterday, he fell down on his side and went stiff with his head back, this lasted for about a minute. He went to get up and went down again and threw his head back, again for close to a minute, then got up and just stood for a while
