Poorly goat

goats Jan 18 1

Coal, the smallest and youngest of our nanny goats (she's 9 months old) was poorly yesterday. She was off her food and was vomiting so we took her to Blythmans, our livestock vet, for a check up and treatment. Graham, the vet who has often treated our goats (mainly when they are pregnant) gave her barium and Zantec. This morning, she was still off her food so we gave her another dose of both barium (in vegetable oil) and Zantec. This afternoon she perked up a bit and ate some of the privet I gave to the goats. By this evening she was eating hay. Recovery is well under way.
