A sick goat
Our goat Georgina was ill yesterday. We took no chances and called out the vet who diagnosed her as having eaten something toxic. She was given anti-biotics and liquid paraffin. At 6pm she was still quite poorly, and vomiting quite badly while grinding her teeth. From then until 11pm I checked on her hourly by which time she appeared to have settled down and stopped vomiting. I decided it was safe to leave her overnight.
This morning she was much happier and fed well on carrots and apples but then seemed to have a bit of a relapse for a couple of hours. This afternoon she was on the mend again. She joined in the feast of privet and also had a few extra carrots.
I'm now waiting for the vet's bill to arrive!
