Hey Ya'll. New to this, so please bear with me & teach me the ropes I have a two twin 7 month old Nubian wethers. It's a long story, so I am sorry, but at age 4 months I was called by the boarding facility (I can't have "livestock" where I live) an they said Marco was acting funny, falling down & had the "Sammy Davis" look. I picked him up & directly went to the ER. He was alert, normal vitals and no diarrhea, but was still weak & seemed blind. We couldn't figure it out. . . . We did SQ fluids that day & a course of Via B inj for a week. We chalked it up to possible goat polio. He slowly recovered, kinda. He can see now, eats, poops, pees, runs around all normal, but has been slowly loosing weight. His twin brother is 100%. Marco weighs 50 lbs & his brother is around 75. They are boarded with 2 MONSTROUS jerk Nubians, a boer, & a Nigerian, all normal. They are fully vaccinated, came from show lines, an impeccable facility, dewormed, I have had two fecals done, normal & a CL & Johnnes test, normal. He is fed alphalfa hay twice a day & I do my best to supplement 5-6 times a week with a cup of "goat chow" and a cup of alphalfa pellets. For the last two months I have been footing the bill for all of them to get free choice goat minerals (I have to hide Marco's & Polo's in Fig Nutins cuz they won't eat it free choice-spoiled!) & gave them copper pills approx a month ago because they have fish tails. Polo looks great, but Marco is still loosing weight & I am sooo sad cuz he is my baby (like, seriously, luv this little guy beyond life ). I originally bought these boys for hiking/packing & am even more sad cuz I can't enjoy them like I wanted to. I live in Phoenix, AZ & would really appreciate ANY advise. Below are pics of Marco *Phew* I'm sorry, a lot. . . . Thank You!
