I have had two alpine goats for almost a year and, as of tonight, I realize that the advice I got from the person who gave me the goats was NOT correct. Now, my goats are paying for it.... I have a young goat (about a year old) who is not getting up and is shaking like he is shivering. He will eat and drink if you bring him food and water, but he will not attempt to get up. The other older goat is just lethargic and no longer wants to climb. Both goats were just FINE on Monday, but in the extreme heat here on Tuesday (from 50s to 90s), we thought the younger goat's lethargy was due to the heat. Yesterday, I started making some phone calls and a friend told me to worm them and trim their hooves. But, tonight, he is lying down and the other goat is now showing signs of lethargy too. No sign of bloat. No diarrhea or unusual poop. They are eating and drinking, just more slowly than usual. They are urinating. So, has anyone run into anything like this? I cannot get a vet out tonight...we have equine vets here, but it's hard to find a vet that will do goats. We're sort of "city" here. Any ideas would be appreciated. I don't even have a thermometer here! Guess I need to buy some first aid items! Geesh.
