Thank you. Joined Various - Eesti Pop VI 3, Messages 24 Reaction score 0 Points Infectious to others. Knees becomes enlarges, lameness, weight wasting, hard udder. Pneumonia, chronic cough. Isolate and remove animal from herd. Did she possibly have any type of accident that might have affected her spine? Is it the front end or back end with walking problems? Meningeal worm comes to mind if you have deer in the area and the goats have been out and nibbling on grass.
Usually you see weakness in the back end first. I have a little doe that she just up and would fall down for no reason. She eats, drinks, and poops fine. She still comes right up to me. We got her when she was 3 weeks old and she is a bottle baby.
She was born on July 4, It seems to be something in her hind legs. Sometimes she walks like she had a drink or two. She stopped growing, but other than that is fine. We don't have a vet close to us that works on large animals. So the guy I got her from thought maybe she had parisites and suggested I take a sample to my dog vet. Which they run it for me and found nothing and checked for worms and she was fine there. Since she acts fine and is eating okay. We just consider her our special goat.
With Devotion - Datura - Greatest Hits being so little I don't want to breed her, so I just keep her in a separate pen by my main pen so she is not lonely. Sorry I could not help and sorry this got long. But I understand how you feel. I wish we had vets in our area that work on large animals. Good luck. Another possibility Floppy Kid Syndrome -Some people believe it is caused by too much rich milk and others believe that it is associated with e-coli.
Newborn kids seem to do well for a few days after birth then start to show depression and weakness of limbs that progress to flaccid paralysis. Drunken appearance. No signs of diarrhea or elevated temperature. Possible distension of the abdomen. Remove kid Fallen Over You - Goat - As You Like source of Milk immediately for 24 to 36 hours. Dissolve a teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate in a glass of water.
With a syringe administer between 20 and 50 cc of the solution orally. Do it slowly so the kid has time to swallow. Repeat the treatment at 1, 3, 6, 12 hours from initial treatment. Feed electrolytes as alternative until returned to milk. Also administer a wide spectrum antibiotic to prevent secondary bacterial infections.
Repeat in hours. Not required to pull from mother's milk from this solution's perspective Third Solution - If the kid can still walk but is wobbly then give 2cc long-acting penicillin orally and MG thiamin.
The Thiamin is mixed with the penicillin, and is imperative to recovery This should work in 6 hours. Give the pen and thiamin for 3 days once a day. Joined Jul 10, Messages 3, Reaction score 9 Points GoatLover89 said:.
Sadly Jasmine died today. But i took her off their bottles 1 and a half months or more ago. But i thank ALL of you for your help. Really sorry to hear that. It could have been any number of things, and without a vet's help in diagnosing it you will never know. CAE can produce neurological problems like this in kids. FKS is generally a neonatal issue hitting very young animals. Mycoplasma, menangeal worms, encephalitis from various causes Sorry to hear about your loss.
