I have a nanny goat that I have had about a month. Tonight at feeding her tongue is hanging out to the side. She has been out grazing all day. She ate her grain. Seems fine but her tongue is hanging out she keeps licking her mouth. She has drool commingling out to. Her eye lids are pink

How weird. Does she have anything inside her mouth, like a foxtail or sticker? Maybe she ate something bitter? Is she acting 'bucky'?

Looked in mouth could not find anything wrong. Her tongue just sticking out the side of mouth and sometimes she licks all around

Is it swollen? The only other thing I am thinking is a breathing issue. How is she, mentally?

Might be Listeriosis,start penicillin every six hours for three to five days, then daily for an additional seven days.
If you want a vet to help with treatment or to direct you, I would do so.

Ok I started the penicillin. I hope it helps if not will take her to see vet Tuesday morning. She still acts the same as yesterday no changes. She is still eating grain and grass.
