    I was going through some of my notes and thought some of this information might be useful

    Homemade Electrolytes

    1 Quart Water
    2 tablespoons Corn Syrup
    ½ teaspoon Salt
    ¼ teaspoon Baking Soda

    Bring 1 quart water to a boil. Stir in the corn syrup, salt, and baking soda. Cool. This homemade electrolyte drink should clear up scours in 2 to 3 days. Substitute this mixture for milk with bottle babies.


    1 part Corn Oil (do not substitute with canola or vegetable oil)
    1 part Molasses
    1 part Corn Syrup

    Use this when a goat is “off.” It will provide quick energy and iron. Give 2-3 ounces 3-4 times a day.

    Revive (Coni Ross Recipe)

    500ML 50% Dextrose
    500ML Amino Acid Solution (50ml if it is the concentrate)
    200ML Calcium Gluconate**
    20ML B complex
    2 grams Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)
    5 ML B12 (3,000mcg/ml)
    5ML 500mg/ml Thiamin*

    Give 200cc 3X/day

    Keep in a
    cool dark place. B vitamins are destroyed by light.

    Do not add water to the Revive until you are ready to give it.

    Mix 50:50 with water.

    If you need to warm it, set it in a pan of hot water. DO NOT MICROWAVE.

    *If you buy the injectable, it is usually 4cc of the 500mg/ml vitamin C.
    If you need to use over the counter product, you can use the crushed
    pills from the grocery store. I prefer the injectable, as I like to give
    it IM to does with mastitis, it really helps healing.

    **Calcium Gluconate is not necessary in Revive unless the doe is
    exhibiting symptoms of calcium deficiency. The most common first symptom
    is tender feet: Walking on egg shells.

    Scour Control

    1 part Biosol (Neomycin Sulfate)
    2 parts Pepto Bismol

    Mix together. For a small kid (under 15 lbs.) give 3cc of this mixture. For medium sized kids (to 30 lbs.) give 6cc. For large kids (50 lbs. to 80 lbs.) give 9cc to 12cc. For adults give 15cc to 21cc (depending on size of goat).


    Ground Cinnamon

    Moisten ground cinnamon with enough water to roll into a ball. Will stop scours but will not treat cause.

    Pink Eye Treatment

    1 part Dexamethazone
    1 part Gentamycin
    1 part Sterile Water

    Mix in a clean spray bottle. Wash the eye area with Listerine (get rid of eye crust) and then spray it. May have to use for a couple of days.

    UC Treatment (Coni Ross Recipe)

    1. 3 lemons

    2. 3 garlic cloves peeled

    3. 1 red onion ( 1/4 piece of onion

    4. 1/2 cup of water

    Squeeze the lemon juice out of the lemons. Into a blender, then add

    the 3 garlic cloves, and onion. Add water and blend well because you

    don't want to plug your drench gun. Simmer for about 15 minutes on

    the stove in a sauce pan. Drench goat every two hours.

    UC Treatment (Pate Motes Recipe)

    Juice of one Lemon
    2 Tablespoons of Baking Soda
    1 Cup of Water

    Drench the buck with 20 cc, 3 times a day the first
    day, 2 time a day for two days, then once a day until
    the urine is full and steady. Keep it up, every other
    day, then twice a week, if the animal is comfortable
    and has a successful flow.

    Well, I will say she is a different breed. I know she will never be aloud back at out fair. She told the kids in the ring that no goats is as good as the goats from Texas and that Texasgoats are the only ones worth ever purchasing. It was a LOT worse then that but I will leave it there. I will say I did learn s few things from her. :roll:
