Hey there this is only my second post so please forgive me. I have a Nubian wether that was starting to leave the herd and stand in the corner, not eat and had all the signs of being sick. Since I am so new and feel overly responsible for this goat (who was someone else’s pet) I took him to the vet. He has a leg infection got antibiotics, my other goats have worms so he got some dewormer then (the girls when I got home). He acted fine for a few days and now is acting off again. I massaged his stomach and got a few burps out but he is grinding his teeth, being alone and lying down. I was in the pasture with him for about 35 min did not see him poop or fart, which he does a lot. Here are two pics of him from the back and above.i am getting the last round of antibiotic tomorrow morning as well.

Thanks for the help everyone. I massaged him more and got out a few more burps, I then let him and the girls into my main field and he ate happily.
