Hi all yesterday I noticed that Cary my goat was bleeding. At first I saw a good amount of red blood and then I noticed she was trying to pee and little drops of blood came out. She is in good spirits and is eating and walking around just fine. She doesn’t seem to be in any pain. She keeps asking for her treats. I read it could be kidneys......maybe an infection. I have Penicillin. She is not aborting because I only have one male goat and he is fixed. If someone can give me some advice I would really appreciate it. She is at the door right now asking for food . Thank you

How old is Cary? Passing stones can cause some blood. Check her close for injury as well. Get her temp to see if infection is brewing.

Hi thanks for getting back to me. Cary is 8 years old and has always been very healthy. Just took her temperature and it’s 102.4....normal I believe. She is still acting perfectly normal and doesn’t seem to be in pain. I am not sure is it could be kidney issues. I did see her strain a little earlier today but when she peed it was a light yellow and no blood. I am totally confused. Where I live there is no good goat vets at all. I have Penicillin and don’t know if I should try that. Do you know of any home remedies? If not I will have to take her to the nearest vet which is 2 hours away in another town. It wouldn’t be her period right? Never seen this much blood on my other goats. Thanks again. I’ll keep you posted.

If shes acting well..no cut or wound to cause bleeding and temps looks good...I would just keep an eye on her for now since last one looked clear. Make sure her diet is bal a need with 2:1 ratio of calcium and phosphorus. 😉

She just came asking for a treat and a little drop of blood fell onto the floor . I’m going to have my husband double check her tomorrow morning for any cuts. Could she have passed a stone? I am totally confused. I’ll let you know tomorrow how’s she’s doing.

Yes...clean her up and pat dry her. Then use a white napkin or paper towel and blot around the area slowly to see where the blood maybe driving from. If there is a cut or wound..should give an idea of where. 🤞

Hi. Yesterday we checked her out and she is definitely bleeding from her vagina. Yesterday very little blood and this morning she has been dripping a bit. She is still her normal self....eating, playing with the other goats and asking for treats. Don’t know what to do. Do you know if they can pass stones on their own..... any advice will be helpful. Thanks

Does often are able to pass stones on their own. A vet check wouldn't hurt. Just to be sure an injection isn't brewing.
