    I’m stumped as to what could possible have caused this injury on my goats back. It looks like she got bit but I have no idea. Does anyone have ideas on what this could be and what I can do for it? Thank you!

    MY 3-year-old wether was diagnosed with a pelvic fracture via x-ray about two and half months ago. The vet provided pain medication and told me to separate him from the other goats in a small area so he could heal. We did that and when he was still not getting better we got a second xray - vet...

    We're new to goats (6 weeks since we bought our first 4 goats), and this seems like a potentially bad problem. One of the boys, 12 weeks old now (born April 21) has torn the sac of his testicles away from his body. Pictures are on Google Drive at https://goo.gl/VKnYu9 . An elastrator band was...

    Hello. We moved across the state a month ago and one of our does got injured during transport. In the close quarters in the trailer, she got hooked in the udder by the herd queen's horn. Her udder became swollen and rock hard on one side and the milk was off color- I believe there was blood in...
