I don’t know anything about goats. But I know about diarrhea. Here is the thing – diarrhea is a symptom, not a disease. Things like imodium might help with the symptom but not with the reason it’s happening. So for my dogs, it is not something I’d do just for that reason, not even knowing the safety of use for animals. The key is figuring out the cause and addressing that. The symptom, diarrhea, will go away when the problem goes away.

With dogs, adjusting level of fiber sometimes helps things but I imagine your goat gets plenty of fiber.
