Hello ya'll! I feel like all I do is ask questions here, I am so sorry! I am a little paranoid I guess, after losing goats to diseases! So...
I have these two boer buck kids. They are 3 months old, named Titan and Denver. Denver is the more active, and healthy one. When I bought them I had no idea that they had a respiratory infection till I took them to the vet. The vet prescribed Dura Vet, and gave me 20 syringes of it (2 cc's each) to give each of them daily for 10 days. Denver recovered very fast and was jumping and playing around like a normal goat kid. Titan on the other hand took the whole 10 days to stop having congestion, and even after the 10 days was over, he still was never back to a normal baby goat self. He was still slow and lethargic, though he would waddle fast after me for food.
After about 2 weeks, his congestion came back and he sounds congested when he breathes and cries. I ordered more Dura Pen online, and it should get here by next week. In the mean time I have Bio Mycin but I see it's not recommended for Goat kids under the age of 6 months (preferably 12 months). I also now have an adult doe and little Denver starting to get a TINY bit congested (not even close to how much Titan is) after a drastic weather change we had yesterday. So, I guess the three questions are:
What do I do till the Penicillin gets here?
Would it be harmful to give Titan (and possibly Denver) the Bio Mycin even though they're only 3 months old?
Would it be harmful or ineffective to start Titan on the penicillin again being that he has already had it before? And (sorry fourth question) should I give him a larger dose being that it did not completely work last time?
Sorry for all the questions! I really don't want to lose anymore goats
