    What would cause a 6-month old Boer buck to suddenly drop dead? He was fine last night, found him dead this morning. He had been dewormed, and had had lice treatment about a month ago. No signs of sickness prior to death. Looked big and healthy.

    I'm so sorry, only a necropsy can provide answers. Usually our local agricultural state university will offer the best price. Silent pneumonia, heart issues, so many other possibilities.

    Necropsy is the only way to know what happened.

    I am so sorry for your loss. :(
