    Well we let our goats out on the other side of the fence today. We have either gladiolas or lilys that I had blocked off. Well the goats knocked the gate down and I think they ate some of this flower.
    Now, one of the goats is acting off. He is just kinda standing there and keeps chocking. I have seen him poo and pee and it looked fine. I took his temp and it was 103. He is acting kinda lathargic.
    I gave him 18 ccs of Bloat Release and he has baking soda out there.
    Any advice on what else to do?
    Are these plants poisonious to goats? I can only find things on dogs.

    Have you given him charcoal? That will help if it is poisoning.

    I have looked at Fiasco Farms and didnt see them on there.

    I do not have charcoal yet but my mom picked some up from walgreens and is bringing it home.

    I do not know if it is a lily or gladiolas or I would have said which one it is.

    Yes, Charcoal will help, can't hurt. Make sure you wear clothes that you don't mind getting colored black because the goat will spit the charcoal all over you. :roll:

    Ok. Got the charcoal. It was in capsules that contain 520 mg of activated charcoal each. I opened up two capsules and mixed it with water and gave him 6 ccs of this mixture.
    I hope he is going to be ok. He seems to be feeling better but its hard to tell.
    We do have epinephrine. We always keep it on hand for when we give vaccinations but I have never heard of it being given for poisoning.
    Here is some pictures of the flowers if anyone wants to try to identify them.

    I think if he was having an alergic reaction his throat would have swollen shut by now. I have been watching him for 2-3 hours now.
