    One of my goats today had a small amount of white foam in her mouth today. everything else is normal. What is this? Has anyone ever had it happen?

    If mine eat their pellets/grain too fast, they will foam and cough a bit until it's clear. Maybe that's all it was?

    When chewing cud yes, it an be normal. Make sure you have some baking soda out for them to ward off bloat.

    Now foam with change in behavior, or change in neurological status is not good.

    Okay- she was chewing her cud. Maybe I just noticed it because I am in the pen a ton now with Abby.

    I have a doe who will foam at the mouth when she hears me getting in the grain bin :ROFL: She paces back and forth and foaming until I give it to her :greengrin:
