My sweet boy had gotten ACORN TOXICITY! Off feed, staying in his hut I checked his eyes are 😱all I saw was JAUNDICE! He was critical! 105.8 fever and jaundice Wouldn't eat.. been doing IV fluids twice a day a litter at a time to clean out the TOXICITY..not out of the woods yet but PRAYING TO GOD 🙏 I CAN KEEP HIM MANY MORE YEARS...I'm also praying tomorrow when my vet checks his blood, that it will look better.. wasn't good at all... didn't eat for 2 weeks, now eating and I give him probiotics and electrolytes in apple juice and he sucks it down now..🙏🙏🙏 PRAYING for complete recovery.. but if I have to give iv fluids for years that's exactly what I will do🙏Re: What plants do you worry about?
I recall the folks at Butthead telling me that they had a problem with their goats eating acorns. I think, if I remember correctly, the mother of the baby I got from them died because her liver was destroyed slowly from the oak/acorns she was eating. They had had a large tree fall over and all the goats were eating more than usual for a while. My goats love to eat acorns, and I let them on hiking occasions, but I wouldn't let them pig out on them all the time.
