We have a 4 month old goat. We were told she was vaccinated for coccidiosis. We wormed here yesterday and she is lethargic and has diarrhea today. Should I use a sulfate drug on her to treat for coccidiosis

Deworming will not treat coccidiosis. Coccidiosis is usually caused by improper sanitation, poor nutrition or after stressful situations. Treating coccidiosis is always oral and always with a product called a coccidiostat, usually called a "sulfa drug" by goat owners. I would work with your veterinarian to develop a plan. Electrolytes may be needed depending on the degree of dehydration.
