When it rains, it pours! It's not my goat but my neighbors. It's a wether pygmy/dwarf and weighs maybe 25-30#'s Probably 6 months old. My neighbors are coming back from Las Vegas tonight at 10pm but their sitter was given instructions on Thurs that this wether was having urinary problems. They have had a little 3 mo old with stones we believe was due to getting into the chicken feed. Anyways, his belly is very tight and the rumen (upper left side is distended more than the right). His belly below is very tight, the rumen is still a little soft, puffy compared to his belly. He is pooping and he did urinate without straining but this is a tiny guy and I know so very little about goats. They did not give the sitter any instructions but to call my friend the cat/dog vet. She gave the sitter my # and I'm all of one minutes drive away. So, I gave the wether some baking soda (2 tsp) balled it up in a water paste and down the hatch about an hour ago. Then, the sitter walked him quite a bit. He was chewing his cud but not anymore. He was drooling before I got there, she told me over the phone. I have an 18 gauge needle I could stick his rumen with but he's not my goat so I didn't to that. He ate a little of Kashi with heavy mineral oil but just a very little. He now is standing in his pen in the house like he's in pain. He puts his butt up against the side of the cage and stands with his hind feet up near his front feet, looking very uncomfortable. I'm standing by with hopes of a quick reply! Thank you!!!
