I was wondering, how do you get a doe to gain weight if she doesn't have much of an appetite (isn't a piggy like goats typically are) for grain/any type of feed? I have a Nubian doe that we bought at the end of May with her 5 day old buckling. Scarcely a week after we brought her home she went down with a heavy load of Barber Pole worms. She was (then) almost 2 years old, and at that point she barely weighed 50 pounds, and looked like a sack of bones. We were very surprised that she even lived. Well, now we're coming on 4 months since she was cleared of the worms (our vet ran a fecal after they had treated her for BP, and she didn't have worms anymore). Last week we had the vet over to castrate and dehorn two calves and to perform Ultrasounds (on 4 does), and draw blood from all the adult goats to test for diseases. Well, when it came time to draw blood from Matilda, the vet saw that her lower eyelids were very pale and that she had Barber Pole worms... again. We had noticed these past few weeks that she wasn't looking as good as she usually did, but unfortunately the thought of her having BP worms again hadn't even crossed my mind. So we dewormed her, and now are working on getting her fattened up. I weight taped her and she weighs almost 80 pounds, which I think is good considering the 50 she was back in June? My problem is, she just doesn't seem to have much of an appetite for grain/sweet feed/calf pellets/alfalfa pellets. She eats grass, brush, hay and leaves like there is no tomorrow, but just doesn't really love feed. All of my other goats are huge pigs and just love feed regardless of what kind it is. Matilda has been this way since I got her, it isn't because she's anemic or sick. Has anyone else experienced this? I need to get some weight on her for breeding season, and of course for her health's sake. We are going to dry her off soon, which the vet suggested doing. Thanks so much!
