How long does and X's buck smell? Can I give him a bath? He was castrated about 3 weeks ago. Thank's to Carol Eddy's book he got a bath with baby shampoo.Worked great.

1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide
¼ cup baking soda
2 teaspoons of Dawn Dishsoap.

Mix the ingredients in an open bucket or bowl. The mixture will fizz. Wet your goat and thoroughly massage the solution into the coat. Be sure to keep the mixture out of the goat’s eyes, nose and mouth. If it is necessary to apply it to the goat’s face, very carefully use a washcloth or a sponge. After applying the mixture to all parts of your goat that may be bucky, rinse the goat thoroughly.

*Warning*

This mixture can be explosive, as it will fizz and creates pressure if it is enclosed in a sealed tight container. Never store unused portion; always discard. Be sure to only mix in an open container and do not try to store or cover it in any way. Do not get the mixture into the goat's eyes, nose or mouth.

Remember that the buck will just get stinky again as soon as he sprays urine on himself, also his musk glands will seep odor. The best permanant remedy for removing buck scent is to remove the testicles!

Hi, we went through this in the spring. It took about three months for my buck to loose his stink after castration. Bathing didn't help because the smell was still creeping out of his skin, you'll just have to give him some time.
