    Hey everyone,
    I'm not sure how I can tell if my goats are bloated or just getting bigger. It doesn't look like there is a difference between their two sides but I'm not an expert. Are there any other ways of telling and how should a "normal" goats stomach feel if I was holding or touching it? I have two pygmy goats around three months old.
    Thanks

    They look normal in those pics, but if the left side is high up & hard it's bloat.
    See how both sides are pretty equal?
    Go get a feel for what's normal so you'll know for sure.;)
