    How long would you keep a goat on LA-200 for pnemonia? It has been 3 days and he still doe not look but so much better, I know it will take time but do not want to overdo it. Bunni

    Is LA 200 labeled for pneumonia? I use penicillin for it, or Tylan.
    When using LA200, I give it every other day, for 3 doses.

    One thing I read said 3 days in a row and another said every other day. Not knowing what to do I just gave it to him every day. Later though when I thought about it I remember getting antibiotics and it was usually over a period of a week.

    He is looking better today. I may just go to Echinachea which usually works very good but I did not catch him being sick right away and so I gave him the antibiotic, Echinachae takes a little longer to work. I will also mix it with Muellin when I have it.
