    I do have her in our sick pen and I just received a message from my vet, she's on her way, this really does sound like acorn poisoning! She has every symptom accept she isn't bleeding from the nose. Thank you so much for your help ❤️❤️❤️❤️ you people are so much kinder than the goat pages on Facebook! I will get back to you all ❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️

    I’m glad you got the vet coming! Hopefully she’ll be better and a chow hound soon!
    Keep us posted and good luck!

    I can NO THANK YOU ALL MORE❣️I HAVE SO MUCH RESPECT FOR YOU ALL TRYING TO HELP ME FIGURE OUT WHAT IS GOING ON ❣️❣️ From what I read i believe it's acorn poisoning, but I may have gotten her just in time, the only symptom she doesn't have is bleeding from the nose. These two Nubians have been the only goats that I have, that constantly has something going on. As I said the last owner said she stopped breeding Rose's line because of heart problems..❣️❣️❣️I will update you ASAP

    It’s always good to bounce ideas off someone to think things through.
    It’s even better to have a good vet.
    I’m just glad it’s getting taken care of.

    Our vet took x-rays, we have no choice but to put her down, the X-rays showed some kind of tumor that was pushing on her diaphragm making it very hard to breathe and my vet said her body was working so hard to breathe that she couldn't eat and breathe at the same time my girl is gone and I appreciate all of your help ❣️ my vet said that she could get bad enough within days and we could find her down and struggling to breathe

    So very sorry for your loss. She had great care with you and now she is romping over the rainbow bridge. Words don't help, but know that she knew love with you....

    Thank you so very much I never expected this to happen today . I have RESCUED these babies from people who no longer wanted them so I certainly don't get vet paperwork, I'm sure they weren't cared for like i care for them, they are just hear to be loved and cared for in the right way! Poor animals but at least I know I gave all my goats tons of attention and love❣️ these goats mean sooo much to us.. thank you all for your help and suggestions I appreciate this website truly

    Thank you so very much at least we did get to have her for almost four years after being diagnosed.. I knew she'd have wasted away a lot faster if I didn't take her aside and feed her grain and alfalfa pellets soaked, right up until less than a week she did great until she tried telling us, I need to go now with my mom, they both are burried next to each other

    Thanks so very much and yes this is the hardest part of LOVING these beautiful animals but I would rather go through this awful time than to never have had them

    Thanks so very much, as I think about this, I used to become extremely depressed after losing ab animal but I'd rather feel awful for awhile then to have never have loved each goat we rescued
