I have a goat kid with bloat. We have 3 goat kids that we keep in a pen seperate from our pygmy goats. We let them out of their pens Saturday to play in the yard and let them start interacting with each other. Our Boer kid had a ball, and unfortunately we didn't realize how much green grass she was eating. On Sunday morning she acted like her legs hurt but my husband said he thought she had been sleeping when we went to see her and that her legs were still asleep. Sunday afternoon we worked hard to finish up our new hen house before the rain set in, and then we had a couple come by to purchase some chicks so we didn't really check on the kids again until late Sunday afternoon. When we did check on her again she was laying down, could not stand, and was extremely bloated. We tried to reach the vet but we couldn't, and still can't the office is closed on Sunday and Monday and we do not have an after hours number for them. We have been giving her the baking soda paste, masagging her abdomen, and even attempted to stick her to relieve the gas. Her belly has gone down, but I don't think she is out of the woods yet and she still can't stand up on her own. So basically I have a few questions I am hoping someone can answer. 1. Will bloat cause a goat to not be able to stand up? 2. If we can get the gas gone can a goat who has gotten bloat so bad that she can not stand up recover? 3. If so how long does it usually take before they can stand up? 4. Is there anything else that can cause the same symptoms as bloat that can also cause her to not stand up? 5. Any other ideas on what I can do to help her? I really don't want to lose her, and I am willing to do whatever I can do to help her.
