A friend of mine has a sidewinding (walks and runs at 45 degree angle, favoring right side - runs with right side on advancing side) 4 month old buck kid. Temperature is normal, has been wormed recently with herbal wormers, urine and feces are coming out normal and without difficulties. Kid has been treated with penicillin as per vet's recommendation, 5cc per day for five days. The kid also gets vitamin A, B, C, D and E through shots, gel caps squeezed into his mouth or a drench. So far nothing has improved, but the kid acts more embarassed when he falls down and can't get up than anything. No apparent joint or muscle problems and isn't in pain. He is eating and drinking fine. Anyone have any ideas what is going on? I've looked up everything that I can find related to goat diseases and nothing fits. The only diseases that have this as a symptom would mean that the kid would have been dead at the end of 72 hours or less if he had those diseases. This goat has had some minor stumbling/sidewinding for about a month. Not even the vet my friend has talked to has any real idea what is going on.
