The boys are going to get castrated tomorrow, by the vet. Surgically.

What kind of anesthesia can goats not have again?

I looked back in Gussy's dehorning thread and local anesthesia can be safely given to goats, its general that you want to avoid.

I'm not totally sure but I thought you didn't have to put boys under to castrate them surgically? :shrug:

MY vet used IV Xylazine for pre-sedation and then Isofluorane for complete sedation. I just looked at my vet report as well. I have no idea what any of that stuff is...

Okiedoke, the vet is my friend and also has worked on goats, but I can't go to the appt. with the babies, because I have to take the WASL. :sigh:
