    Last night our goats got into the feed room, don't ask me how, we are still trying to figure that one out. Thank heavens we only had enough feed for one more meal, I had to go to the feed store today. Well, most of the girls now have diarreah(sp?). Is there anything we can give them for relief? They also got quite a bit of corn too. They are due anytime now, and one of the girls is having a hard time getting up and down, and will not try to eat anything, although she did drink. I don't know if she got hurt during their rampage, or if she was one of the "eaters." Any advise would be very helpful and appreciated!

    Ditto the kaopectate, baking soda, and probios.

    Are any of them actually bloated? You might dose any bloated ones with some vegetable oil to break up the gas bubbles.

    Don't goats get into the most "interesting" trouble sometimes?
