ONe of my new born bucklings is sick. He was born in February and has always been sickly. My wife thinks it is because of his problem delivery. This morning, I noticed that he was just standing there and he was shivering. He also appeared to have a fever. The other goats were moving around and did do anything. I let them out and he didn't go out. Then, about 5 minutes later he he went out and just stood around w/the others. I forgot about him, as the boss was on me first thing about a yearly inventory that had to be done today!!! Well, when I come home, he was laying there grinding his teeth and w/a foam around his mouth.

Also, last week, I had a pig die. Are there diseases that cross between the two?

What do you think?

Well, I wormed him and gave him an antibiotic shot and he is up and around, eating, chasing the other goats and etc. He looks much better.

I wormed the whole pack of male goats (but not the females, yep I know,) and some of em got the squirts.
