    My new quarantined psycho pygmy doe that is just too cute has been dry coughing. She did alot of coughing today. Sounds like hacking. No runny nose or crusty eyeballs, pooh is normal, eating hay, drinking, learning about grain. Should I be concerned?

    A lot of times it's just dust or something but did you take her temperature? Do you hear anything in her breathing? Temps really important.

    Did you get any of the hay that she was eating, so you could change her over? If not it could be that maybe you hay is a little dustier then what she had? I say keep a (ear) on her and make sure she is not starting to wheeze, or rattle. I put Thyme oil in my goats water when they start to cough.
