So two days ago my goat got his teeth floated under light sedation as he has been drooling and choking on his food the past 3 months. Very healthy otherwise. My vet said she could float his teeth because they were sharp. She did this on Tuesday evening, but found that actually he must have dislocated his jaw so floating his teeth will not stop the drooling. It is now Thurs morning and he is still pretty lethargic (just wants to sleep/rest all the time) and is not really eating / chewing cud and I am wondering how concerned I should be.
After calling the vet she said his mouth would probably be pretty sore for a few days because she used a horse rasp, but should be ok by the weekend. He only really eating finely sliced bananas. Not eating hay, tried bread and he had a couple of mouthfuls but then turned his nose up. I don't know how many bananas I should feed him to keep his rumen functioning.
Should I be worried he is not eating? He is definitely not himself and feeling sorry for himself. Should I be concerned?
