I have a goat (not sure of breed) but she went off feed. Temp was ok last time checked but she has not enough rumen sound to me. I have been giving black beer, probiotics and about 4 cloves of garlic and a B Complex (6 ml) for the last 3-4 days. B Complex only 2 days in a row. She ate a little alfalfa pellets and will eat hay and green leaves. She has been shut up in a small pen for since I discovered her problem because it has rained every day and night here for 3-4 days. She is in the dry. This evening after I gave the beer and probiotics and she ate 4 large cloves of garlic I listen to rumen and for 2 minutes straight I got no sound. I then put my hands under her belly and picked up on her for 9-10 times and worked her rumen side back and to them listened, I heard the sound lowly like a sea tide makes then a loud rumen sound. I kept her penned for the night, and tomorrow she will get the herbal for rumen from fir meadows. I will try and do temp tomorrow eve when I come in from work at around 4:30pm. Hopefully if I can hear rumen sounds I'll release her. Anything I'm missing here? How often should I hear a sound when I put the stethoscope on her? How often between sounds? I think she is going to be ok but when I turn her out with the herd, she will be getting oats and alfalfa mixed half and half. That why she is penned up, to keep the rain off her and the oats out of her until she is well. I haven't seen her chewing her cud yet. You would think I knew the answers to this but I love your support and thoughts on your takes. I'll post her pic, what breed do you think she is?
