Hello Everyone, A few weeks ago, we heard a scream and ran into the barn to find our 9 month wether on his side, legs straight out head back, screaming in pain. He continued to have these episodes throughout the day (and has now for three weeks) and seems to be in discomfort for the remainder. He's even rubbed off the hair on one side of his face, I think from rubbing on the fence to distract from his pain. Sometimes he'll be standing with his head twisted back screaming, sometimes on his side, or nearly his back writhing, but silent with his eyes closed like he's passed out, and sometimes like the first episode. It hasn't intensified or alleviated, just stayed the same. Our first thought was urinary calculi, but after an ammonium chloride & urinary non-steroidal anti-inflammatory treatment regimen, and an extended stay at the vet, urine analysis, etc. that's ruled out (he was peeing regularly and his urine was acidic. The vet also treated him for a urinary infection with antibiotics, but to no avail. He hasn't had a fever either, so we're not thinking infection. We do have an adolescent LGD in with the herd, who has been known to try to "play" with the goats (we're working on it), but has never hurt one. Also there was no wound or blood and even if it were completely internal, I don't think he would have made it this long. We're getting a test for Lyme, but the pain seems rather intense for Lyme, and he has no loss of appetite. My current hypothesis is ulcers. Some of the drugs we used to treat the other diagnoses could have made them worse (antibiotics & anti-inflammatories). We've been giving him Carafate (stomach lining med for ulcers) and baking soda twice a day. It doesn't really seem to be helping much though. The vet seemed to be stumped so I'm reaching out here hoping somebody has had a similar experience. Please help! Note: It's been in the teens here at night and he's been shivering a good deal. All the other goats are fine (and usually are even below zero.) Just an observation.
