Please help!! We have a 7-week old male... Please help!! We have a 7-week old male goat (mother was a Saanen and father a Nigerian Dwarf). The mother would not dilate during labor so her twins had to be delivered by c-section (mom was put down, very sad). The other twin, a female, is totally blind but thriving. The male however started yelping while urinating at about 10 days old. A few nights later he started screaming and kept it up all night. We thought he was constipated as he hadn't pooped all day and gave him several enemas, but he kept screaming. I took him to the vet the next day: an x-ray showed a lot of gas in his intestines and a large dense mass (about 2 inches long, looked like a smooth oval stone, up near his right kidney); he had a high fever of 106.7; and showed signs of pneumonia. The vet administered fluids subQ and prescribed Nuflor to be administered by IM once every other day (3 doses total), and one dose of banamine, IM. I had never given an IM injection before so I may have screwed it up. The first Nuflor injection (in right side shoulder/neck area) he screamed in pain of course. That night I administered the banamine (left side neck area) but may have gone too deep with the needle? On day 3 I gave the second injection of Nuflor (again on right side), and he screamed bloody murder. 20 min later I tried to feed him milk but he had a seizure (lowered head, pupils dilated, seized up, eyes darting from side to side, and fell on his side while kicking really fast). He had several smaller seizures that night. After that he was never the same. He was feeble, growth stunted, needed a lot of help to suckle the bottle, had weakness/stiffness in his legs, could barely stand up, basically sat still a lot while holding his head as if looking up at the sky, and was generally in distress and poor condition. He became dehydrated and seemed constipated so gave him milk of magnesia and an enema, which seemed to provide some relief. I gave him a dose of selenium/vitamin E paste (but he had already gotten a dose of this earlier, as we live in a low selenium area in WA state... Is it possible I caused selenium toxicity?). Also started him on treatments (given orally via dropper or milk bottle) of: B1 tablets crushed in liquid B complex (human vitamins), baking soda, pedialyte (but not much as he hates it), Probios, goat minerals, and nutridrench. I massaged him often and he gradually improved over the next month. He started eating leaves, was drinking milk well, gained weight, started cudding, and was walking around if stiffly. Occasionally he would cry out in pain and would grind his teeth, but as of yesterday, even though he was still walking stiffly, he was frisky and even doing some awkward running/trotting. He really has fought hard to live. Yesterday at around noon though, he suddenly started screaming in pain while walking around outside with the herd. He suddenly became almost paralyzed. His hind legs became weak and his forelegs useless, especially the left one, just totally buckling under him. He could barely lift his head. Eyes wide and bulging slightly. His body is stiff and he cries out a lot. Have had to keep him propped in a sitting position using blankets etc. He still has an appetite for milk, and he's urinating and pooping just fine. But I think we may have to put him down. Many times I thought he was at deaths door but he would always pull through. I hate to put him down. The goat vet is closed today so if we have to put him down, it will be at some non-goat vet. I love him very much, he has a sweet and fighting spirit. Any ideas about what the heck is wrong with him or if there's any hope at this point?? Note: he has been on cows milk since day 1... but I suspect we may have over-fed him during his first couple weeks. I just don't know. Also we kept him and his sister in a pen in our home at night, and she (being blind and quite hyper) would often step on him or bump into him. But they would cry when separated and he seemed to be improving so we kept them together.
