Hi folks, Bad day here... After Dixie's abscess the other day now Dude my new buck has a urethral obstruction. He was fine on Saturday, yesterday he was splinting and seemed painful, I didn't note any urine flowing. Being a Sunday no vet could come out and I did't feel comfortable taking him to the small aniaml Er I work at, so I started him on AC drench and called the vet out first thing this morning. The vet gave him a sedative, he'd already had most of his pizzle cut off previously but she was able to remove the remnants of the urethral process but there is no blockage at the distal end which means the blockage is probably further up.. The urine was slightly sludgy in the process. He's on pain meds, vitamins injections and Flumix. Neither of us were really able to palpate his bladder but I know this can be challenging because of where his bladder is located, although there's a chance it ruptured. Prior to sedation he was looking a little brighter and was chewing his cud/walking around. The vet strapped a pad to him to monitor any urine output and he's taking Methio-Form to try and acidify the urine. If no improvement she's recommending a surgical tube cystotomy tomorrow. Has anyone had this performed on their goats with success? I'm just trying to be prepared for whats to to come.. I've only had him a week but am very attached and worried.
