  • After meeting with sheep men and goat men throughout Oregon it seems to the writer that the question most often asked of him is, "What can I do for scours in my sheep?" or "What can I do for scours in my goats?" As the number of these animals in Western Oregon has increased, these questions have become all to frequent. It is quite true that scours or diarrhea is only a symptom, but it is such a common one that it is being used as a title for this circular. Every serious outbreak of scours in sheep and goats which has been observed by the department of Veterinary Medicine of the Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station has been caused by parasites of some type. In dealing with scours this circular will consider only those cases produced by worms or parasites.
