    Hello, I have a four 8 week olds, 1 is bottle fed. We noticed on the bottle baby that the hair on her legs was thin (almost as someone shaved her). After looking at her body, it appears she has lice. This is our first time with babies and I'm worried. We just dusted everyone with DE along...

    What products and schedule do you use to prepare a pregnant doe for kidding and to avoid anemia after birth? We've recently had issues with our mothers becoming severely anemic after kidding. My husband has wormed on a schedule since we've had our goats. 2 Nubians that we got late last year had...

    Have a doe that kidded two days ago - a single kid - and she has so much milk I'm afraid she may get mastitis. Milking her out a little but wonder how else to treat her. Hot packing, change in feed or ? She's getting pelleted goat chow, loose minerals, grass hay and some alfalfa. Help!

    Baby has these weird little bumps on her tail... They almost look like ant bites, but could possibly be something worse like staph... How do I treat it? Should I call the vet? I wanted to pop one, but was afraid it would get infected if I did... What do y'all think? Thank you, Nigerian...

    Went to feed the buck on Friday and he was standing by himself without approaching to say hello like he usually does. Buck is 4 years old this March and I only recently acquired him, with a clean bill of health from breeder (health testing done, supplements UTD). Was shivering slightly and just...

    Results for our llama and his fecal sample are he is dealing with Barber pole worm, Barber's pole worm (Haemonchus contortus) or Parelaphostrongylustenuis, or something like that spelling! :think: Vet said to treat him with Panacur. Is this best? Will he need Ivermectin also or another...

    I have 2 Alpines. A couple days ago while I was milking I noticed in between one of my does front legs right on the beast plate was a sore that started oozing puss. I started treating it with vetericyn after each milking. This morning I noticed that my other doe has the same sore in the same...

    My Nigerian has developed a couple of bald spots on her side. No sores or painful looking wounds; skin is very smooth. I did some research and I believe it is mites, although I've never dealt with them before. I'm having trouble finding what the best treatment is. Any good advice and the names...

    Hello there, We've been trimming our goat hooves this past week and we found some hoof rot. I've read that a zinc sulfate dip would help them, and would honestly be easier than applying some kind of spray twice a day to 15 goats. However, I can't seem to find any specific dips or treatments...

    Hi! We have a new (our first) bottle baby Nigerian Dwarf born on 2/11/14. We got her last night. I have noticed she is very itchy. What are the signs of lice or fleas? How do I treat lice or fleas on such a young goat? If there is no sign of either what supplements would you recommend...

    I recently purchased a gorgeous Nubian doe I could never have afforded, except that she had only 1 functioning teat due to mastitis a few years prior. She was in the process of drying up from weaning when I bought her, and her sellers hadnt milked her. Got her home and milked her out with the...
