I had two 6 month old goats and one passed away yesterday. The remaining goat we have (Dave) seems to be mourning the loss of his friend. We are planning on getting another goat that is similar in age as him, but I am worried about introducing them. What is the best way to do this?
I am new to this, and am not sure what caused our other goat to die.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Goats under one year old are very susceptible to parasites - do you think that could have been the cause?

I would have a knowledgeable goat vet do a thorough exam and fecal analysis on Dave before adding new goats.

I'll add some links to other threads on goat introductions
