Hello I am new to this forum and would like some advise on my goat:crazy: Gordo. Gordo is 8 months old. He was born healthy and until around a month ago all was fine with him. I started noticing that he would fall eaisly and was not running at all anymore. I went on line and started reading about weak legs. Well, the first thing I thought was selenium deficiency being that we live in Florida and are soil is very deficient in selenium. I treated him with BOSE and I also treated him for copper deficiency. His fur had some discoloration and was kind of rough. His fur is looking better. But he is not doing well in his walking. I took him to the Vet (they don't know much about goats) but they ran blood work and gave him IV fluids and and anti inflammatory shot and antibotic shot. He didn't have fever. Blood work came back good. No anemia, no liver problems, kidneys good, no sign of cancer.......the only thing was his protein level was a little high. Apparently it was due to him eating Peanut Hay which turns out to be too rich for goats. He is now eating O&A which is less rich. I then read about deer worms. So I asked the vet and she said that she thought it was either selenium deficiency or deer worm and being that the BOSE didn't make a difference we should treat him for deer worm. So I gave him SafeGuard (which is the best to treat deer worm) for 7 days and I started give him B-Complex too. He started doing better. He was walking longer distances and was more alert. I was so happy But today Gordo couldn't get up. He still eats and drinks water, but can't get up at all. He tries and he falls. I get him up and hold him and make him walk little steps, but the poor baby just keeps falling down. He was doing better and today this So my question is does anyone out there know or have experience something like this in their goat. What else beside selenium or deer worm can cause weak legs. I am going crazy here. I feel so bad for my Gordo and I don't want him to looose him. Any advise will be appreciated. Thank You!
