    I don't know - I'd really just prefer 6oz dark room temp guinness beer.

    I agree. The other is not harmful but if her tummy is not happy..the sweet potatoes and molasses could be upsetting.

    So dont use this recipe?
     
  5. I do the vit B complex orally and have good results - I don't like giving shots unless no option. I pulled a doe out of polio with oral Vit B Complex given orally. Did have the vet come and she said I was doing a good dosage and left me a couple of thiamine shots - also said do subq or you can do orally. I didn't need the extra thiamine - she recovered without it.

    How often do you give the beer?

    Just a little update..this morning she was actually up eating grain when I went to the barn with her bottle. This time I just gave her goats milk, a couple heaping tablespoons of yogurt and electrolytes. She sucked it down. So there is some improvement today which makes me so happy!

    The recipe looks like something helpful for getting a goat fed when they can’t eat anything, not getting a rumen working.

    She's still doing better. She's still really weak. Walks some on her knees. She is putting some weight on and her famancha I do believe is getting better.

    It does take a long time to recover from anemia, and it's only been 8 days since the second deworming, but I'm really concerned about the weakness you are describing. I hope she continues improving. I'd consider mailing in a fecal sample next week, 2 weeks after that 8/11 deworming, just to make sure she is on track. Continue daily alfalfa and grain to make sure she has the protein she needs to recover.

    I'd definitely start on nutritional smoothies to get some groceries in her as well. Carrot, celery, dark greens, some yogurt, parsley, wheat grass, garlic, molasses, ACV.

    Dyne high calorie liquid is good too.

    I'm worried about her weakness too. She has been getting yogurt daily. I will make a trip to the store to get some goods for her. She is still eating alfalfa and grain.

    If you can, get her up on and off daily, even if it is for a short time.

    If she will go out for a little while to graze, allow her to do so.

    I find, when keeping them confined makes them depressed.
    It seems to lift spirits, if they can be out and supervised for a while.
