    Hi :welcome

    Sorry to hear about your goat :hugs That's very sad indeed, I'm afraid I've not actually kept goats before but they are on my list. Please do pop over this section if the forum ~
    I'm sure the goat keepers there will be able to help you.

    Good luck I hope your reamaining goat makes it :fl

    Yes please post on the link you were given. Most of us probably do not raise goats. I don't know if they are subject to some of the same ailments chickens are, like coccidiosis which causes bloody, loose stools and can debilitate an animal fast.
