I have a 4 y.o. doe who was obviously bloating when I got home from work at 5:00. I called the lady I bought her from and she said to give her 1 cup of veg. oil and get 16ga needle and stick in her gut to release gas. We got about 1 cup of oil down her, alot on me and her. I put about 1 TBS of baking soda in oil. Also we slipped her a GASX (simethicone) pill that I had in house. I went to TSC and got needle. They did not carry anything for bloat though. I picked up a home vet book while they looked for bloat drench. Book advised against sticking needle in gut. Said can let gut juice in peritonium <sp?> Got home and she looked the same. Called vet. Vets around here do not know about goats, She said DO NOT stick needle in gut, can cause peritinoum infection. She said to give more oil and not much more she can do. She is kindof lethargic, hanging head and seems to be kindof wanting to sleep on her feet. Not trying to lay down. She has started shivering some, I put two fleece blankets on her.... going back to check on her now.... anybody have advice PLEASE!
