Lil' Pygmy Goats - Photo Album

PLEASE NOTE : I am NOT a veterinarian, and do not claim to be in any way. This list of medications / herbs / remedies was put together by many goat breeders (including myself) who have experienced these problems with their own goats and have hands on experience in treating their own goats.
So this list is from knowledge
that comes from personal experiences.
 
But again, I am not a veterinarian, and neither are many
of the goat breeders who put this list together.
 
Seek a veterinarian for medical advice.
This list is for reference and educational purposes.
It works for us, but I cannot promote it since I am not a veterinarian.

5.Make some decaffeinated Green Tea in boiling water (1 bag of tea in about 1 cup water). Let tea cool down a bit until warm. Mix a few teaspoons of baking soda in with the Green Tea. Then squirt some down the goats throat. On a 25 lb kid, I would give 30-40 cc Green Tea/Baking Soda hourly followed by some water (sometimes I’ve squirted water in their mouth, or sometimes they’ll just drink by themselves). Give a few cups of dry, uncooked oats (this will help harden up their stools). We’ve only used this treatment on kids, but would use it on adults if necessary. Most of our scour cases have been in kids. One time some of our does overate on some grain accidently and they got really bad scours. We watched them closely, they were acting and eating fine, and they got better within a few days).

Sprains, bruises --

on Web look up Wing Chun (martial arts). There's a list of ingredients for Dit Da Jow linament. It takes about 6 months to brew before you can use it, better after a year or 10 years, but it works better than Absorbine or most anything else. After it's brewed, decant into a 12 oz glass jar and add 20 drops peppermint essential oil, 10 drops Wintergreen oil, and 2 tsp. DMSO (from feed store). This helps penetration, peppermint is anesthetic, wintergreen restores circulation. You cannot overdose with this.
