Help, goat isn’t gaining weight

443 Views 20 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  toth boer goats
He’s almost a year old now. He’s a fainting goat. You can’t tell too much in this picture but his sides are sunken in. He has a little bit of a belly, but his hips are just sunken. I feed him a lot, make sure he forages. But he never seems to gain any weight. And now, he’s sleeping a lot, distancing himself from the others, walking slow, has eye discharge and a cough, and seems like the life has just been sucked out of him. He’s my best friend, and I can’t lose him. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas, please let me know. I’m desperate.

Will he eat immune boosters such as chewable vitamin c, or orange peels, and garlic?
You can try offering some while waiting for your vet.
Sorry he’s not feeling well 😢
