    I would like to know what age you start kids on Co-Rid and what doses you use. If you dose them up until they are a year old, is it ok to do if they are bred? Also how often do you give it and do you follow with probiotics? Any other additional info would be great.

    Subject: Corid Treatment
    If you are going to use the corid, use it at the following rates and syringe it into each kid according to weight.
    Don't use water treatement the kids will not drink enough of the water.

    Treatment dose....use once a day for 5 days..no less.Use it full strength...no water! The "calf dose" isn't strong enough for goats.

    Doses below are 50mg/kg (2.2#)....recommended treatment levels for caprines.

    6cc/25#
    12cc/50#
    18cc/75
    24/100#
