    My almost 7 week old penny got her cd&t booster yesterday at the vet and she seems very lethargic today. She wasn’t even excited while I was making her morning bottle and has been in her bed all morning. Should I be concerned?

    Our herd princess Griselda was fine at milking time last night. A couple hours later when I went to put the goats in the pen for the night she was last one in and did not come and eat any dinner- just went and stood in the barn alone with her head down. This morning she did not get up...

    Hello all! I'm new to goats, I took my 11 week old nigerian dwarf to the vet to be castrated today. They did the cutting method but the doc said I didn't need any pain meds or antibiotics for it. I wouldn't bother, but he seems very painful. He just stands in the same spot and doesn't move at...

    my male boer won't get up. He CAN, but he's just laying there today. Not grinding his teeth or making any noise. Doesn't look like bloat, although we did the vegi oil and baking soda - but no air came out of him. I don't hear him ruminating. He ate last night, but I haven't seen him poo or pee...
