Background: I am new to goats. I have 27 acres, about 5-7 is mowed grass, a pond, a barn, etc. and then the other 20 acres consisted of corn up until about three years ago and has been dormant ever since. There are some old dried corn stalks from what wasn't plowed down three years ago but is very overgrown with weeds, grass, a decent amount of hairy vetch, and whatever else would natively grow in the Midwest. I have two six month old Lamanchas and two nine month old Nubians being rotated around on the overgrown pasture a half acre at a time. They are also given loose minerals and baking soda as they want it and they had a salt block up until about a month ago when it became lost in the pasture and I haven't gotten a new one yet. Besides that I put ACV in their water. My problem: I kept asking people if my goats were small and they said that since they looked healthy and acted healthy I shouldn't worry about it. I just kept questioning that because they seemed really small to me. So I weighed them yesterday morning and the two six month old Lamanchas were weighing in at 37 and 40 pounds and the two nine-month old Nubians were weighing in at 72 and 75 pounds. I read about issues with worms and did the gum/eyelid test and all of the goats coloring was very light pink to white. I haven't dewormed them since I got the goats back in May so I decided to deworm them yesterday evening. When I went out this morning all four of the goats looked waaaay skinnier. Much bonier than I've seen them before which was really concerning to me. I called the vet but she didn't seem very concerned because they have been eating normally and are still really energetic and curious. Now when I went out to see them they don't appear to be as skinny...because they seem to now be bloated. Big, round, hard stomachs. They have been bloated before and it has been cleared up with baking soda. I'm just worried that the deworming did damage or that I waited too long to take care of them. I have noticed some things that could be worms in their berries but their gums are still pale. Other than the small size, pale gums, and now weight-loss/bloating they have been eating well, having healthy poops, running around, and generally acting normal. If anyone could lend some advice I would really appreciate it. My ladies are very loved and right now I feel like I'm doing them a disservice.
