Well the ruminant vet came today, he brought two students and another vet with him. Hollywood was dehorned and the whole procedure took about 15-20 minutes, and he woke up within a few minutes and was flirting with the girls again. And he did testing for CAE and Johnes and the total cost to test our entire herd (15 goats) was $40.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Plus $25.00 for disposables. They were awesome. Too bad I'm moving and won't ever need them again! Oh yeah and they gave me Epinephrine (SP?) for free too!

See that's the thing it lookes like he was disbudded! Not gross AT ALL! I was so surprised, I've seen some yucky photos of dehorning. Hollywood gave me a scare tonight though, he was laying all the way down and breathing really shallow. But I gave him some Arnica and he actually escaped the pen he was in :leap: I am keeping an eye on him though (with my barn cam) and he is rooting around in the hay right now.

Are you sure you didn't miss a digit in that vet bill?!
Here's what mine wouldlook like:
Trip fee 65
Herd fee 100 per hour
blood draw 10.50 each
testing 8 each plus 15 group, just for cae
vacinations additional.
And de-horning, astronomical, like 65, now dis budding they will do for 8 w/out sedation.
Crazy for sure.
