Hello all, and sorry for the short introduction before I get to my problem. I recently came into possesion of a young goat for my step-daughter's 4h project and all was going well until about a day ago when we found the goat on its side. Just an hour before it was running and enjoying the day. So, calling the folks we got the goat from and they told us to get some pepto and baking soda, but that we may be too late. Needless to say I knew very little about goats, but now I could probably draw you a decent picture of their digestive tract, or at least the stomachs. Long story short, I was able to get the goat off of the milk, got some ReSorb, and gave it some Milk of magnesia. I gave it an enema, and now the scour (i think that is it) is coming out.. runny and greenish black. I have not put it back on the kid-lac yet, and continue to give it ReSorb, with a bit of baking soda. The kid is alert, its eyes are bright and it still bleats and yells. It is still wanting the bottle, and it is trying to move. However it has been a day since it has recovered to that point and it still cannot quite get up. I can help it stand for about 1-2 seconds before it drops to its front knees. My wife has become more attached to the Kid (she named it Elvis, cause it curls its upper lip up, but i think it would be better named after billy idol) . Regardless, the little nipper will crawl on the floor, and bleat its frustration at not being able to stand. The temperatures seem normal, at least compared to when he first arrived. I have not had the time to get a thermometer strictly for the goat yet so I cannot give you specifics on its temperature. It is still grinding its teeth periodically, and I am burping it once in a while. Not sure where this is going, I guess I am hoping that the alertness and desire to stand is a good sign.
