Geneva is a 6 wk ok Pygmy ( the runt of a triplet birth, only female) who I found on Monday at lunch, laying on her side in the barn at feeding time. She couldn’t stand, and when I picked her up she thrashed and couldn’t hold her head up. I segregated her from the rest in a corner of the barn. When I got back home after work (5:00), she was sitting up, but I could tell she was still “off”. I brought her up to the “goat hospital” on our back porch, and then hit the Google to find out what was going on. Everything I read led me to polio; when I held her head still, her eyes just went back and forth, like someone with vertigo. She held her head to the side, “stargazed”, couldn’t really walk straight or stand for long without tipping over. I called on a cousin who’s a goat man, and he brought over penicillin and a bottle of injectable fortified B vitamins. We dosed her with those, she drank a bottle of formula, and then laid or stood very still for the rest of the evening...except for her bobbing eyes and head. Yesterday morning, there was little improvement, and her poop had turned from normal to mushy but still solid. She took another bottle of formula. On lunch break yesterday, I mashed up some B complex vitamins and mixed them and some probiotics in with the formula, and she took that. She also ate a little feed (not sweet feed), and some hay. At 5, her poop was super mushy to almost liquid, and she wouldn’t take a bottle. I used a syringe and gave a little water, and then we dosed her again around 9pm with vitamin B injection, plus dosed her with wormer. Today, she seems a lot better; has had 3 bottles, has eaten feed, electrolytes, the probiotics, the mashed b complex tablets, some feed pellets, and even jumped off the porch to play with the dogs! She’s standing pretty steady, and her poop has turned back to normal goat pellets! My only issue is, she is still holding her head cocked to the side...could she have nerve damage? I lost one a few weeks ago to a bad case of bloat that she couldn’t overcome, even with all the tricks I tried. That goat was also a runt, but was much older...plus she was one that was given to me bc the previous owners couldn’t keep up the bottlefeeding schedule. She could’ve had defects I wasn’t aware of. But Geneva came from a healthy dam and buck, but it’s the first set of triplets we’ve had since having the goat farm. I just need someone to coach me to help her get back to health and off the back porch, lol! She’s a sweet girl!
