I just wanted to share what happened to my Pgymy goat a few days ago, as a warning and to maybe help someone out there not let it happen to them. We were told when we were given our 2 goats, that goats can and will happily eat about anything....weeds, twigs, leaves, grass, hay...you name it. So we decided to take them on to 1. help with yard waste and 2. to help with the weeds in the pasture that the horses dont eat. This past week or so, we had been giving them their normal amt of daily grain, hay and water. On top of that, as a special treat...we had been giving them a bucket to share of freshly pulled grass and weeds...they LOVED this, the little girl who helps me care for them calls it "Goat salad." Anway, a few days ago I came to the barn in the morning to find one of the goats, lying on the ground, convulsing...foaming at the mouth...her head twisted upward at a funny angle and screaming out in pain. I instantly called the vet but he was going to be able to come out for a couple hours, so that was out of the question. We rushed her in the car to the nearest "big animal" vet clinic a couple towns away....they deflated the air that was bloating her stomach, put IV's in and started on blood work. It came back that she had Cyinide posioning!!! And the vet said it's found in some plants especially this time of the year since it's spring and everything's growing so quickly. It was most likely in the grass/weeds we had been feeding them and the vet said it was a freak occurance. Turns out, we think the culprit was Johnson grass....it has levels of Cyinide naturally in it and the poision increasing in toxicity if there's a freeze, etc...which there had been 2 nights in a row and then we had fed them this plant. So PLEASE be aware and be careful what you feed your goats. We came to find out this Johnson grass is throughout our 2nd pasture and is very tall right now, which makes it more toxic too. So that will need to be cut down. An update on our goat. Luckily her life was saved, however as of right now, she's lost a TON of weight and had to stay at the vet's office on IV's, etc for 3 days. She's home now but has unfortunately lost her sight as a result of what happened. The vet is hopeful she will regain her sight and not be permentally blind, but we just cant be sure. She was once the dominant goat of the two, now her sister is. It's so sad to watch and I feel so responsible although I know it was a complete lack of knowledge and an accident. I just wanted to let other goat owners out there know what can happen and be careful what your goats are eating!!!
