Try to make this as short as I can. I went out of town and hubby was in charge of taking care of the animals... I came home to find he hadnt bothered to fill up the waters on my goats... I came home at 5:30 pm. He was out there at 12:00 noon and checked on everyone he said but didnt have time to water. He saw my 6 month old La boer on the ground but figure him just resting he said. I get home at 5:30 and my buck is flat on the ground very close to death... our temps are 105+ most days. I hurried him in side and gave him some karo syrup and some pedialite and some water, have been giving him water for days... hes in my house now. The first day he started to recover pretty quickly. He was eating and drinking well. I thought he was gonna be fine. Hes walking around just fine. But he cant get up on his front legs by himself very easily. He almost acts like hes in pain. Its been four days since this happened, hes walking around trying to bumb his head against you for attention, but he still cant get up on his front legs. Any suggestions? He was improving but shouldnt he be improving faster? I love this little buck for both what he is, and hes sooooo sweet. ***Update*** Rocky is standing fully upright on all fours today, and even making noise. He hasnt made any noise since hes been sick. Hes defin. headed another step toward recovery.
