Hey y'all . I'm a newborn farmer!lol! Didn't nth know a whole lot about goats. I've posted about my little nine month baby alpine /bouor(sspelling?) He got the bloat and that endrotoxemia(sp?) He got constipated also. Well after the third shot of Penn antibiotic, he's a lot better. We raised him on the bottle in the house since he was born. He actually thinks he is a dog. In fact my male golden retriever adopted him! We brought him in for the night and he went strait to the dog food and commenced to munching down!!! Does anyone know if this will hurt him? He lost a lot of weight when he first got sick and the dog food is 27% protein . But I'm not sure that's the kind of protein he needs. And last but not least, what can I feed him to put the weight and muscle ma's back on him? He still will take a bottle and I buy powdered goat milk and mix it like baby formula. Any advice will help. I know this is mainly a chicken site. But I've gotten advice from people raise goats. If anyone can give me the 411 on the feed and the health. I was told thiamin or vitamin B complex is good . I just want to be the best momma goat I can be. I let my husband handle the chickens. But my little Pepper is my heart.
