My boyfriend has a goat that back legs started to give out and more recently I've noticed he is loosing mass in his back end and falling down more often. When he is standing still his back legs seem stiff and he stands with them more apart probably to keep his balance. If he gets excited and tries to take off he always falls now and then has troubles getting back up. He is starting to fall more often when he just slowly walks as well. I've read places that it could be a lack of minerals like Selenium. My boyfriend said he talked to a vet before and he said it could be because he was bottle fed and he walks on a different part of his hooves and needs some kind of shot to fix it but I feel it is a lot more than that because he's getting a lot worse. I'm just asking if there is something I can do right now to help him because it is breaking my heart seeing him fall all the time. We are going to have a vet come out but I was wondering if there is something I can do in the mean time to help him or to just get an idea of what the vet is going to tell me.
