    first off all your posts in capitals are very hard to read -- can you turn the capitalization off? Its just hard on my eyes

    As to the goats - coughing can be any number of things

    1) dust from the ground, hay etc yes can cause coughing
    2) lung worms can cause coughing. Treatment is Ivermectin orally
    3) pneumonia - treatment is oxytetracyline for 3-5 days 1cc per 20lbs

    I have to agree on the Caps....I was thinking the same thing... :wink:

    I also agree that... it can be any of those things that causes a cough.... with pneumonia...usually they will have a higher temp.... Anytime your goats are ill 1st thing to do is... take their temps.... :thumb:

    agree

    I'd ask her to take their temps, if they're elevated I'd suspect that they're sick

    I agree also. I would also listen to there breathing, look for runny nose & eyes.
