    Hi,

    I have a problem with my old goat (she is ~14-15 y.o.). Yesterday she got some stomach issues and puked. There was quite a lot of foam coming out from her mouth and also nose. I have tried to clean her. Today her stomach is better but seems that she got problems with breathing through the nose, making snoring noise (coming from nose, not lungs). Sometimes also looks like she gags. Is it possible that it is caused by irritation of the throat and the nasal yesterday? I am keeping her inside today, she looks fine, got appetite (but she got only some soft hay), no fever but this breathing problems are worrying for me. Maybe someone got the same problem or know if and how I can help her. I would be very grateful for any information.

    Cheers,
    GK

    It may be blockage or may of gotten into something not good.

    I would have a vet look at her in case.

    Try some baking soda in any case. Won't hurt and should help her tummy
