Yeah I know we went against our better judgement and brought a Young Doe home. After some time we have her worm load down, scours are gone and honestly I have learned a lot about caring for a sick goat.

I have read that some use Beet shreds as a supplement any thoughts on using them to give her a boost?

thanks

Exactly what are you feeding her now?
Mostly plants and brush native to Middle Tennessee. We have 5 pastures that we rotate. There is a lot of what I believe is called river birch, that they are quite fond of. Thankfully it's still relatively warm here and growth is still consistent. So everyone gets plenty of fresh brush. In the fall I will supplement with hay twice a day. Also they get a fed a small amount of grain, and there is always goat mineral and baking soda in the barn in feeders.

when we got her she was in rough shape and very lethargic. Now she is doing much better but in my view still a little underweight.

thanks
