Also make sure she doesn't lay flat. Keep her propped up. Move her legs for her to keep muscle tone and blood flow going. Moce hee from side to side. Once she has some strength..use a large towel as a sling and get her up walking with support.

Best wishes
I've actually gotten an old baby stroller that I have transformed into a sling of sorts and yes I'm rolling her and propping her constantly I'm sure she's getting extremely spoiled and or tired of me. Thank you so much for helping me with her. I second guess myself constantly. I lost one to listeriosis and one to milk fever and one to polio last year. I am looking into new diets and possibly new hay providers. I thought this year I was so on top of everything guess now What do you think about the cydectin? I live inCatawba va and my some of my pen is wet a lot.

Do you give vitamin b SQ or IM? Also 12 a day or all at once?
Good advice by all.

I would give 12 cc's of fortified vit b complex.
Overdosing is OK, they will pee out what they don't need.

Massage left side of tummy (rumen). Walk the goat, no grain just hay.

ruminant probiotics or cud transfer.

Cydectin is an effective dewormer in the correct form. Not the purple cattle pour on..but cydectin sheep drench, or Quest horse paste are both good choices. Quest is the strongest and needs to be dosed careful at 1 cc per 100 pounds. The paste stays in the system longer so boosters should wait 21 days at least.

B complex is fine sub q ;)...so glad she's chewing her cud. You're doing good!
I Read tht you give the cattle pour on in their mouth it is nasty smelling stuff & that is what the vet recommended,but now I am really not trusting him.

My feeding routine is simple maybe that where I am messing up. I use medicated alfalfa grain and a sweet feed (from tractor supply) and hay in the winter. I worm when famacha says to and had been using ivermectin. In the summer I only give enough of the feed mix to make friends w them and they have 2 pastures I rotate @ 6 acres. I have 14 goats total. I know they need more space but this is what I have. I have no bucks therefore no more breeding.

Cydectin pour on..the purple stuff is very common via vets. It doesn't make him a bad vet, maybe just uninformed on the down side of giving it. It is effective but their are other choices that don't require dumping harsh chemicals designed to adhere to a cows Hyde down our goats gut. So I prefer to recommend better choices.
I purchased the pour on kind (expensive) would it be ok to give to my bigger goats tht May have a better tolerance to the nasty stuff and give my smaller younger ones the sheep version?

Yes she was
If you can return it do. If not, yes use it ...1cc per 10 lbs.
Just when you're out switch. Are you positive your goats only 50lbs? Did you weigh her on a scale? Looks can be deceiving on goats.
The reason I ask is 12ccs sound like a lot for a 50lb [email protected]
Yes she was weight at vet last week and I can tell she has lost several pounds this week I don't have a scale because I hate the criticism it hands out lol but I suppose I need one for my goats tht will be added to my list
