    Nothing yet. Ligs sort of came back. She's not eating(hay or grain) which has me a little
    worried. It takes a lot to get Clemby off her feed. She's still very uncomfortable, a lot of
    pawing etc. She's...

Hey there!
I'm in Bastrop and was wondering who you use as a vet

@arielmadison Hey! :) I use Dr. Amanda Kowalski at the Belton Vet Clinic in Belton, TX - it's a bit of a drive, but it's well worth it. Highly recommend them; they're super helpful and reasonable priced. Dr. Kowalski is also one of the very few vets I've found who knows what she's doing with caprines, too.
I've also heard good stuff about the folks at A&M. :)

Hope this helps! Good luck!
