My sweet Nubian/Boar cross buckling must be castrated... I'm just having a tough time deciding how to go about this and I need opinions of those who are experienced with this... I've been there, done that, actually... It was just a heck of a lot easier when I hadn't bottle fed them and they didn't follow me like a dog. My older boys were taken in to the vet to be castrated, which involved them being put under. That's the part that makes me nervous seeing as some goats have issues with anesthesia (like any animal, of course) I will not band him... I have no reason other than I just don't like the idea of it at all and the fact that the vet made it sound like some horrific act. My last option is to use a Burdizzo or allow my friend who is experienced with it to do it. I like the idea of it because it's bloodless and free of use of anesthesia. No matter what method I wind up using, he'll be getting a tetanus shot before... Oh, and if this makes a difference, he's 15 weeks old. Opinions? Experience? Also, I promise to stop with all the questions soon!
