I personally don’t have much experience with bloat but her are some remedies/treatments

If you have a goat with bloat its leftside (rumen) will be tight and hard. You will want to relieve the pressure by giving baking soda mixed with a little water to make it soft. This baking soda ball you can stuff in the goats mouth and it won’t be able to spit it out so it must swallow it.

Rub and massage the rumen area. If it is a small kid you can hold it and bounce it like you would a colicy baby.

Keep up with the baking soda till you see or hear results. The goat should start burping passing gas and acting more comfortable
