Two of our goats have sore mouth and now another one has a thick snotty mucousy discharge coming from his nose? With this part of sore mouth or something else? Other than that he's acting fine

...sounds like Pneunomia could be sneaking in... I would get his temp . If he has a normal temp, try a bit of benedryl but keep a close watch on him..if he begins to act lethargic or seperates himself from the rest, head hanging down..begin to cough then even without fever I would begin antibiotics...

By the way thanks for all of your help I see you reply to many threads!! We've only had our goats about six months so were still pretty new to this

Oops..sent this and half my post was gone...so here it is again

Nuflor is a good RX antibiotic 3 cc per 100# daily for 5-7 days...if you cant get a vet to give you a bottle or enough for 5 days..then Tylan 200 is a good OTC choice and easily available..1 cc per 25# 2 x daily for 5-7 days...
These are both Sub Q (under the skin) use a 18 G needle since the meds are a bit thick I also use a 3/4 inch long needle..
B complex is also nice to give during times of stress...also sub q :)

Your welcome..Im happy to help. And Goat Spot is a great place to learn...Ive learned a ton here...
