I would give him C D Antitoxin ..if they do not have any on hand the Milk of magnesia will help...15 cc per 60# ...
Milk of Magnesia should be dosed orally at 15 cc per 60 lbs bodyweight and given every four to six hours until the goat passes clumps of feces and then goes back to making normal pills.
about 1/2 -1 teaspoon baking soda in enough water to drench. message his left side nice deep kneading like motions..bounce his belly, walk him ike crazy then message, bounce walk..until you see or hear rumen function...and as Karen said..no feed until he is back to berries

He most likely has enterotoxemia...or over eating disease..the cd antitoxin or milk of magnesia or even activated charocol will help bind the toxins in his gut...The baking soda will help reduce the bloat..messageing and bouncing and walking will help his rumen ...Probiotics will help restore flor in the gut...CD&T will not help right now..

best wishes

I just talked to her again. His stomach is not hard on the left side. He is not making and yells like in pain. She said his stomach sounds like its full of water. Could he have cocci instead

water belly could mean his rumen is off...probios could help but he needs something to bind the toxins....what is he doing? standing? laying? head down? back arched? tail tuckes? grinding teeth?
