I have been feeling pretty sorry for myslef lately- First Dot had no kids, I still haven't figured out exactly what is wrong with her and the vets have all my money. So I was prepared for something awful to happen when Timber got suddenly very lame- she could only take little baby steps- she was standing with her knees slightly cocked. Now the vet had said both my goats were overweight- I had just switched them from alfalfa to grass hay- I checked her front legs and hooves carefully- nothing. Fine- just great- I decided my poor husbandry had given my poor goat laminitis- so I started her on anti-inflamintories - she got a ltiile better but not much- I had a horse with chronic laminitis so I thought I knew how to take care of this but maybe back to the vet?- I'm already up to my knees in debt over Dot and without result- wa wa wa wa wa wa....... Then yesterday morning I thought- she should be better- I watched her hobble along with her back legs way under her and said to myself- I wonder.......... Finally checked her back feet yesterday- she has a serious case of scratches- for pete sake- I washed them and treated them and today she is 75% better- treated again and will keep it up til gone. But how stupid of me- I was so ready for something awful that I couldn't spend time checking everything out but just assumed the worst- poor little goatie. So wa wa wa wa on me!
