    Hi, I’m new here and have a huge problem. So my 1.5 Month old baby goat is doing terribly, she didn’t receive any colostrum from when she was born because she was a bit premature and her mother barely had any milk. I’ve been bottle feeding her ever since. At first she was fine then she got a...

    Hey, I was wondering if it was safe and effective to use Cydectin (sheep oral drench) for 9 week old kids? I have the safeguard liquid too if that would be a better option. Let me know your opinions.

    Our nubian had twins 4 days ago and her milk had not come in. We brought the babies home as one was very near death and the other not far behind. After hours of work they did warm up and both took to a bottle very well. The first 2 days they looked to completely rebound. Both playing, eating...

    I have a baby boer born Thursday evening. Things seemed to be okay even though she was a little weak. Yesterday I noticed she was cold and a little limp, so I brought her inside, got her warmed up and gave her a bottle. Once she was back on her feet and moving around, I put her back with her...

    I have a 10 or 11 day old baby goat that I'm having to bottlefeed because the doe rejected it. Everything was going fine until yesterday evening when I noticed that my little girl kept stretching out her back legs constantly and seemed just a little bit wobbly on them. When it came time for her...

    I have a 13 week old male pygmy who just died from bloat. I have been weaning him and just feeding once a day, and when I got home from work, and fed him a cup of milk from his bottle, he seemed happy, and about 5 min later started expanding and making noises, and then he kept expanding. I...

    I have a darling bottle baby named Buddy who is about 6 and a half weeks old, and is recently getting pretty good with eating solids, but still hasn't touched his water. He's obviously thirsty, and will down a bottle or two of water happily, but he won't drink it out of the bucket. I've tried...

    I have a four week old bottle feed baby that lives in the house with me. He was rejected by his mother and is a lot smaller and less agile than his sister. He loves his bottle but has very little interest in his hay or goat feed, having a few pieces of each a day. He goes around the house...

    Hey there! My bottle baby is 3 weeks old, when should i start to wean her? Is there a limit of time where I should give up giving her a bottle, because i love it and find it so adorable! Will weaning her early or late affect her size and attitude as an adult?

    We live in South Florida, and my boss decided to get alpacas. We've had them for about 2 years, but this is my first year working with them. The days are starting to get miserable, with 90+ degree temperatures and a ton of flies. We have fans set up in their barns, and they like to play in the...

    Hi, I had a doe give birth to triplets this afternoon. Doe seems to be in good health and the labor was quick and without any issues. The first born was a very small doeling, the smallest of the three. She was immediately responsive and is still doing well. The second and the third were bigger...

    We picked up a 5 week old pygmy goat on 1/23 around 6 in the evening. He was with his mama, but the owner of the mama was trying to get rid of the kids quick, she seemed to want nothing to do with them. We brought him home and he didn't want to eat, but we just figured he was scared. He slept...
