Good! I’m glad!
Let’s revive this thread
A goat with poor parasite resistance, poor body condition, and a poor coat (maybe some balding... maybe some curling...)
What might this goat’s problem be?
I know, I know, starting out easy.
For this game - symptoms by one person, and the next guesses the problem AND the treatment!!
Let’s have some fun! Keep it going!!
The goat needs copper (that their body can use)?
Ok... Goat is coughing, sneezing, has a small rasp in lungs, but no fever and acting fine... You cut hay 2 days ago... What is it?
The hay cutting kinda gave it away LOL
Could it be lice/mites as well?
Here’s one that was used before, but the symptoms are a tad different.
Flaky skin, balding on the bridge of nose, and around the eyes.
Zinc! Could be copper and zinc as well!
If wanting to cover zinc but some copper too - TruCare4 is a good option!!
Bristling hair, shaking, crying, sucking unsuccessfully and always looking for food.
This is fun! Here’s another one.
There is a Crusty circular raised lesion on the surface of your goat’s skin. Your goat has been scratching it lately.
What is it? How do you treat it? How should you protect yourself from it? (That gives it away )
Could dust from the hay be in their lungs?
Ringworm. (Which I know to be not a worm at all). Never had to deal with that myself, but I have a sister who got it once.
Hmm. I'd try Nustock on it and wear gloves myself when handling said infected area. I believe sunlight is affective at getting rid of it faster too.
Don’t forget some diluted iodine or betadine - a crushed garlic and olive oil paste applied to it is also good - some say diluted bleach works, but I think it’s a bit strong!!
Yes @NigerianDwarfOwner707 and @MellonFriend!
I'm stumped. What is his/her temperature? How old is it?
Here’s a tough one - there’s one clue/piece of info that would give it away - so I’m not going to say it, but if you guys are stumped I will... think outside the box!!
Weakness, poor appetite, separation from herd, foaming at the mouth, neurological symptoms - tremors, stargazing, teeth grinding, sweet smelling breath.
i was just reading on this but cant remember the name. Ketosis?
Yes! Pregnancy Toxemia, which is the same as ketosis - ketosis is after they have kidded and toxemia is before. In this case I was aiming for a pregnant goat with it, but you are correct!! Good job!!
This is a fun game.
My turn. Trying not to give too much away
Young kid showing symptoms of head tilt, progressive paralysis, loss of coordination.
