Never use gas x on a bloated goat. Gas x is formulated for a human digestive track, not a goats. The fastest and easiest is to use a squirt of dish soap into say a 20 ounce bottle of warm water and make them drink it. About half they time they will drink it no problem. Some you will have to force. BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO OVER FORCE THEM. If they breath it in to their lungs, they will most likely develop pneumonia. Using a dosing syringe is best. Dont shake and dont put the soap in the bottle first. You are not looking for suds. The way this works is, the larger bubbles in the dish soap are much easier to pop then the tiny bubbles of bloat. Elevate the front of the goat and massage belly to help pop the bubble. They should start to burp. Therabloat is in the same chemical compound family as dish soap. Baking soda is a rumin buffer. Its better used to help with floppy kid syndrome or while a goat is on antibiotics. We offer it free choice most of the time to our animals and they will visit it as often as they visit the loose mineral salt we have for them.
