    Hello...I have been trying to find out what might be wrong with my Alpine Buck that is a little over a year Old. There are signs of Kidney/bladder stones in the fact his pee flow is slow, but he seems perfectly fine besides that and he cant stand up on his back legs. He is pooping regularly and I had a fecal test done that came back with no results. So my question is will kidney/bladder stones make it so my goat can't stand? Please help!!! and thank you!

    Why not update this in the thread you had earlier about this?

    Have you physically brought the goat to the veterinarian? If not, you NEED to do this. I know vet visits can be pricey, but if he hasn't been able to walk for some time, there is a serious problem. He needs either vet treatment, or euthanasia (if he is suffering).
