I don’t think they look terrible. Just maybe not due in a cpl weeks 🤷🏼♀️
What is selenium? And is it vet prescribed?They don't look bad. Could probably use a little more weight. Might need some copper and selenium.
A month and half go fecal we're done and they were treated for baby pole worms.When were the fecals done?
They can get parasites like barber pole from eating short grass so that might be part of it
They may just need some extra feed (like alfalfa and beet pulp pellets) in addition to the grass/brush
I would feel them all to check their body conditions (they should have a layer of flesh on their bones, shouldn't be able to feel sharp bones, you can google goat body condition for more info) and give any skinny ones some extra feed daily
Just if you start feed make sure to introduce it slowly, we usually start with 2 cups alfalfa 1 cup beet pulp but you can start with like 1/4 cup beet pulp and increase from there
Just remembered you said they are pregnant so keep in mind I'm not experienced with feeding pregnant goats
Yes second fecal came out clean. They were dewormed with ivermectinDid you do a 2nd fecal 10 days after treatment to ensure it was effective?
Not all wormers work for BP.
Selenium vitamin e gel can be purchased otc at your farm store. Or on Amazon. There are forms of Se that are prescription only.
If pregnant, it’s a good idea to give a dose to help them out and make sure babies aren’t weak when born.
my goats free range. They don’t get additional feed this time of year, other than a little grain mix in the evening - mostly just to keep them coming in at night so we can work them or sort them and just check them over. If your dori g just started, they maybe just haven’t been able to gain yet.
If Bred, additional feed would be a good idea. I know you just got some and aren’t sure on being bred or not… I dont soak my alfalfa pellets and they chew them fine. Beet is recommended to soak.
What is a zinc tablet and bolus gun?To me, I would copper bolus. And also put a zinc tablet in the bolus gun. Then take a picture, wait a week and see if theirs a difference.
Their body size looks good for a yearling. And only the coats look a little rough.
We use barely and I use 2 scoops for 8 goats. My scoop is bigger than 1 cup. I have a huge red scooperWhat kind of grain and how much does each goat get?
Thank you guys so much. Il definitely get these guys some copper And zincA bolus gun enables you to give the goats a pill easily.
Human zinc pills can be given to goats.
Amazon sells copper bolus for goats. Dosed at 1 gram per 22lbs. Some people need to bolus their goats with copper every 3-4 months or some twice yearly. This is in addition to free choice loose minerals.
