    My Nigerian dwarf had blood in her urine. I just noticed it today. She seems fine and happy, just like usual. Nothing but the weather has changed, She has been dry for a month now, and i was planning to have her bred...HELP!! [​IMG] I have been told that there is only1 vet who handles goats in our area, and i have been unable to get a hold of him today!!

    Sounds like a bladder or kidney infection. Does she have a temp? I would treat it with pen 2x a day for about 5 to 7 days if she was here. Get a temp on her to see if its ellevated as normal runs usually at 102.0. Good luck and add a little salt to the feed to get them to drink more water also.It helps by flushing out the bladder.

    Quote:I agree. I have had this happen with one of my goats and that is what the vet told me it was. She treated it with Pen also. Goodluck.
