I third whats been said about possible "shipping fever" aka pneumonia. It can happen in all goats and especially ones who went through a sale barn.

I like an oxytetracyline (LA 200, Biomycin, Duramycin) 1cc per 20lbs once a day for 5 days.

Yes get a digital thermometer from any drug store or grocery store and you take their temp rectally. 101.5-103 is normal.

Personally I like la 200 for respiratory. Yes you can use a generic I use duramcyin. It's cheaper :)

And yes I've used it in you kids. The only known side effect is possible yellowing of teeth and while that's annoying I rather an alive goat then a dead one!
