Default Coughing Buck - What to do?

We are brand new to goats and just started putting our herd together. What do you do if one of your goats is coughing? I've only heard it once so far.

Did the goat just cough once? They do cough occasionally. If you are concerned, then I would start with taking a temp. A goat's normal temp is 101-103.

Ok, I'll do that. What do I do if he does have a fever?

If he is coughing a lot and has a temp, I would give him antibiotics.
