    Hi all - there's been a behavior change in my milking goat, Patience, and I'm not sure if it's normal or not. There are a couple things I think might be causing it, but I'm not sure if there's anything else I don't know to think of or look for, and was hoping to get some input. I've been...

    My sweet 1 year old goat has been sick for weeks now. She was brought to a vet by my mom who was babysitting while I was away. That vet thought she had bronchitis and prescribed her a shot of antibiotics x 5 days. She was heaving with a snotty nose. The goat seemed to be perking up with the...
