    Has anyone any experience with Iris Coloboma? I bought a Nigerian dwarf that I have noticed has a weird shaped pupil, that does not dilate in bright light. Iris Coloboma is the only thing that I can find that fits the description. But I see nothing on the internet to indicate that goats have...

    I woke up this morning to check on my pregnant doe who’s close and her eye was like this. It’s sunken in and funky. Her nose is also a little gunky. Anyone have any ideas? It wasn’t like this last night. Here is her other eye for comparison.

    This morning we noticed our 9 week old doe has swollen eyelids (both eyes) and her rear end is swollen/red in appearance as well. We flushed her eyes with a sterile saline solution & plan to flush them again with liquid silver and a chamomile compress. She has no discharge and her eye is a bit...

    Hi, We have some three month doelings that have leaky eyes. They do NOT have pink eye because last year we had pink eye, so we know how it looks like. They are also a bit under the weather more or less. :( Do any of you what it is and how to treat it?

    Hi, We just picked up a week-old buckling this afternoon. He has a severely inflamed right eye-- I suspect his lid is turned in. Of course, these things always happen on a long weekend. I plan to apply a warm, salt cloth to it but then would like to give him some ointment to relieve his pain...

    Three days ago, I noticed that my doe was squinting her eye. I checked it and didn't see anything. She was acting just fine and her eye was okay but when I looked at her today, her eye is a little cloudy. I rinsed her eye with some saline solution. It doesn't seem to bother her. I'm thinking...

    Hey all, Was just out trimming hooves (well, supervising anyway) and as I was looking over one of my boys, I noticed that his skin on his face and at the base of his horns has grown thick and flaky. I figured it was just dry skin, but it's definitely getting thicker. Is this something I should...

    Hi, I had a wether get pinkeye in one eye about a month ago. I gave him 2 shots of LA-200, put a couple drops directly in his eye, and he cleared right up. About a week ago I noticed a doe's eye (only one) was weeping and I gave her 2 shots of LA-200, about 24-36 hours apart. 3 days ago her...

    Some place I saw what to do about pink eye. I saw triple antibiotic ointment, contact solution or oxytet? Her eyes are draining and they seem to be stuck close like if a person was sick with pink eye. We gave penicillin and washed the off real good. We had the eyes open and put some neosporine...
