Hello,
I have a 4 year old wether buck who was acting fine this morning, when I fed them, but an hour ago I found him lying down by their troughs and he couldn't stand up. We got him some water, and got him some shade, but he is panting really hard, and he can't get up. I researched it, and I thought maybe he had heat exhaustion, but the rest of the herd was all out in the direct sunlight, and they were fine, it got up to 90 F today. Thanks for any help.

Definitely get his temp. 101.5-103.5 is normal range. Give a shot of b complex to start him off. If he has fever he will need antibiotics and possibly fever reducer. What do you have on hand?

B 12 is great if he's anemic. That is somthing else to check..his famancha.
LA 200 will work in a pinch if he has fever. The others are dewormers.
Let us know his temp and famacha
