Posting this for D&D Farm, they didn’t know how to start a thread.

We have kids that is 4 months old and 3 months old. Yesterday I went to feed them in the morning And they both had a cough. This morning the older one has nasal discharge. The younger one still has a cough but no discharge. Sorry I don’t know how to post to the whole community.

Now our buck and one of our adult does has the runny nose and cough. I gave everyone a shot of penicillin a few days ago. I’m worried though because our buck is in rut and not eating much. No fevers but I’ve tried everything I know (which isn’t much) and he doesn’t eat unless I stand right next to his bowl and wait for him to finish.

Never give just one shot of penicillin. It actually takes 3 days of penicillin to start working. Plus you are just building resistance. Get a temp on them. If you are new, call a vet. You need a good relationship with a vet plus you can learn a lot. Once you get more knowledge under your belt, you won't be calling the vet so much.
