Mine never vomited. She never gridded her teeth like she was in pain. Mine would also drink a little water from a bowl but wouldn’t suckle. Even yesterday she wouldn’t suckle that much. She is getting back to normal rapidly though. She is suckling like crazy now. She even ate some avocado both today and yesterday. She is still pooping often, but it is getting much more formed, not hardly pellets yet though. They are still a little more stinky than normal.

You can take a stool sample to the vet and they can test it for you an tell you if yours has a parasites. It’s pretty cheap to get it done. You can buy the Cydectin at Tractor Supply. That’s what they prescribed her and it kills various kinds of worms. Just make sure you get the oral kind. I also got mine a tube of probiotic and a tube of electrolyte. They are for goats. You can get that a tractor supply too.

If you do think yours has Barber Worms or a similar parasite, I wouldn’t delay the treatment. The Barber worm is dangerous and causes severe anemia and malnutrition.
