Uc is commonly caused by the imbalance of calcium : phosphorus ratio. A little alfalfa is safe and adds easy to digest nutrients.
Can you post a pic of the "tumor" thing?
Yes..tsc should carry the tetanus antitoxin. Make sure it says antitoxin. It's a small 5 cc vile.
I am procuring some at this moment!! Thank you!!

I have to be honest here.
In my opinion, he needs a vet to look at him, test the lump for cancer, check for urinary stones, X-ray his jaw, etc.

With these issues, it could be why he cannot gain weight.
If he has cancer cells, it can cause weight loss.

Some diseases can also cause it.

Having a broken jaw, if it isn’t aligned properly, he cannot grind, chew his food and cannot bring up regurgitated cud properly, so he cannot absorb nutrients.
He is in critical condition, all in which is working against him unfortunately. :(
I know ...we are trying to do what we can till vet can come out...in the mean time...

That's wonderful! Sounds like you may not need the ammonium chloride, though it's good to have on hand. I've never had to use it, but have shared with another goat owner who had an emergency.
