He needs thiamine or b complex with at least 100 mg thiamine in it ASAP , also penicillin as suggested in the article

B Vitamin therapy pronto with penicillin! Electrolytes. This can be fixed if treated promptly and agressively...If you can't get hold of a vet try Med-A-Goat 911 on internet..they have an emergency vet phone list.

If your b complex has 100 mg of thiamine it's fine.... If there is 25 mg need to dose 4x the dose... Straight thiamine is best but is Rx. Begin penicillin as well per the article

4-5 cc per 100# every six hours the same with the penicillin...

wow... this is a rarity. Someone who posts looking for help, answer questions asked and then does the suggested treatment right off without trying to defected the suggested treat for something easier and or cheaper. Nice :) All good advice. Good luck.

Great news...keep up treatment for AT LEAST 24 hours after he is 100% better...avoid a relaps which is much harder for threm to pull out of...its also suggested to ween off the thiamine (b complex) not to cut cold turkey...

best wishes
