    Can a goat get laryngitis? I have a 3 year old milker that can’t talk. She moves her mouth but all that comes out is a squeak. Her temp in normal and there’s nothing coming out of her nose. She eats like crazy and isn’t off her milk at all. She's alert, inquisitive and active. I’m not real worried because in all other aspects she’s behaving normally. I decided to post because now a couple of my other girls are having the same problem. I think it’s probably just a cold but thought I would ask for a second opinion.

    Thanks everybody.

    I have a first freshener who lost her voice during kidding. She has since gotten it back.
