    I read somewhere not long ago that you could give a children's liquid pain reliever to work - and now that I need it, I can not find it.

    A friend of a friend's goat got attacked by a dog - - - - and did not take it to the vet when it happened. It is bad off I guess.

    I gave them the name of my vet - and said I would find the dosage for medication and let them know.

    Anyone - if you remember what type of children's pain reliever and the dosage - PLEASE post it here.

    Asprin is ok, Tylenol and I *think* ibuprofen should NOT be given to animals at all, it liquifies their livers.
    Good luck with your friends doe.

    Asprin (Adult), is fine.. It does not have to be the childs. I gave my beloved Liz, 13 twice a day for weeks.
    If the goat was attacked. She needs to shave that bite areas to see how bad the wounds really ar, then she needs to use a Betadine/warm water/ and liquid dish soap. Make the mixture a light to med tea color with some suds. Wash the area really well three times a day. He needs to be given some Nutra Drench. Make sure he is eating and drinking. Give Probias if needed, or yogurt.

    Thanks for the info. This poor goat has been seen by the vet twice, but unfortunately we don't have a good "goat" vet in the area. The goat was attacked on his head and neck by a dog. The vet sewed the ear back on, but there just isn't enough blood supply intact to get the ear to heal. So we will be removing it on Monday.
