    Ok so a freind of mine has some pygmy goats, she has a set of 2 week old twins and then a 1 week old. The two 2 week olds are as she says acting like they are drunk. SO I thought floppy kid syndrome. She says that these babies are normally very active bouncing and playing and then she went out there today and she said they have a hard time walking around or getting up. is this floppy kid synd. and if so what do I give them?

    that is the website I found :) if at all in doubt, I would take them to the vet.
    It sure came on fast and if it is floppy kid syndrome, it doesn't take long to kill them. :worried:
