I have a little goat who is three months old now. I took her to the vet awhile back because what seemed to be a chronic sinus infection. She has been off and on antibiotics since then. After the second round I told the vet she would appear better and then suddenly it would return. He suggested a second visit. The vet examined her and she did once again have a respiratory infection. I was chatting with him and told him it was very odd that when she nurses milk often comes out her nose. It was as if a light bulb went off in his head. He immediately checked her mouth and discovered my sweet little goat has a cleft palate. Her momma knew something was wrong. I had a horrible time getting mom to nurse this baby. Sometimes animals are so much smarter than we are! I'm just devastated. He called various specialists and they all concurred the prognosis is dismal. They could operate but they have done it before and never with long term results. It's also outrageously expensive. Thousands. I don't like to see any animal suffer. I have picked up antibiotics but am also asking everyone to lift this little goat up in prayer. I know I'm hoping for a miracle but they do happen to people so why not to sweet little goats. I have a farm visit scheduled on the 17th to wether the buck and give shots to the pups. I don't want to think of putting her down but it breaks my heart to see her suffer. So...count down the days to a miracle for my little Chloe.
