Have raised goats for many years now and have seen and accepted the outcome of the little sick ones over the years. It is hard to realize you ..can't save them all and now with our local goat vet gone don't have a very good person to get advice from and of course you must put a $$ amount on how much you will actually do for a sick animal too. But this little 6 week old has me baffled !! She is one of 2 does born without any problems..nurse well and haven't been ill in anyone since birth. Momma goat does fine with them etc. Now that the days are nicer they are all outside grazing for a few hours. But...when she was born I always thought her breathing..respiration..were too, too fast. I counted 40 a minute at one timeher sides go "in and out" strangley. She jumps around with the other sister doe and is actually the bigger of the two. This afternoon just went up to the barn to shut the gate to their pen...all the goats were outside laying in the sun. this little doe was panting very, very fast. Couldn't get a respiration on her. Every once in a while she'll cry out..not a good sign. She walked into the pen and I separted her, and sister with Momma alone. She is laying down next to them just breathing fast and making that "squeaking" sound that goats often do. Here are my thoughts and tell me what you all think. Could it be that since birth she has had heart problems or lung problems and growing bigger will only add to them ?? Like I have said...no physical ailments at all..very heathly little does otherwise. Don't believe it's poisioning of any kind since others are fine and have dealt and seen tha in past goats I have had...Tried to give a little water down her throat but isn't interested in the bottle..will take a bottle also. What do you all think ????
