Goat Health Conditions and Coccidiosis

Goat Health

Coccidiosis is a common health condition in goats that is caused by a microscopic protozoan, or single-celled, parasites in a goat's intestinal tract.

Symptoms of Coccidiosis may include:

  • Scours, or diarrhea with our without mucus or blood
  • Dehydration
  • Weakness
  • Emaciation, or extreme thinness
  • Anorexia, or lack of appetite
  • Constipation

Contact your veterinarian to have a stool specimen analyzed to determine whether the organisms are present in your goat's intestinal tract.

How to Prevent Coccidiosis in Goats
Practice good sanitation on your farm to control Coccidiosis. Young goat kids are especially susceptible to this condition and should be kept in clean, dry, and well-lit pens.

How to Treat Coccidiosis in Goats
With the advice of your veterinarian, provide goats with medicated goat feed or medicated water containing Decoquinate or Rumensin to prevent Coccidiosis in goats only if they are not producing milk or meat for human consumption.
