    I hear all my goats cough occasionally and it doesn't alarm me. But I have a 9 month old nubian doeling who is coughing and has a stuffy (bubbly) nose.

    Is this a vet case, or can I treat her myself, and if so, how? I have access to Tractor Supply nearby.

    Thanks

    If you have some Vicks or VetRX you can use that. A simple cold or stuffy nose is not normally a vet case. Smear the Vicks on her nose or place a couple drops of the VetRX in the nose. VetRX any species kind will work.

    Have you taken her temp ?.... if her temp is high .. then antibiotics should be given..... she may have pneumonia...

    What color is the snot?

    Does she still have an appetite and drinking water?

    If she doesn't have a temp ...it could be a cold...
    could be dusty hay/shavings, could be allergies with no fever could be .. lungworms

    Could also be cocci...

    If no fever... get a fecal done on her.... then you will know if it is worms or cocci.. :hug:
