I have a little buckling born a few hours ago. He's nursing act fine but his front feet worry me. Is this something he will grow out of?
Some animals just need more than others like with minerals. But you should go on and either give bOse or selinium/vit e gel now to the kid and everyone like salty said. BOse works much quicker but it has come from your vet. Most vets will sell you a bottle of it.It's weird because he is the first newborn I have seen this in they have loose minerals available at all time and I give my mother's replenim during pregnancy so what could be causing the definicy? I use the sweetlix minerals.
I think i have seen that ok to do... @mariarose @ksalvagno @toth boer goats @SalteyLove. One of these lovlies will be able give you a definate answer here though.I don't have the gel tonite I will have get that tomorrow can I give some replenim tonite. Will that help until in the morning when I can get some
Since I already have the replamin would it be ok to just use it instead of the gel? Do u think I still need to go invest in it?I'd give the mom a full dose every day for 3 days. The baby should get a pea sized dollop on your finger placed in his mouth, once a day for a week.
I actually prefer and use the Replamin over the selenium gel now.
