PINNED POST INDEX FILES INFORMATION

EVERY SINGLE GOAT PERSON

Oil is used to treat Bloat
Baking Soda for Bloat and Floppy Kid SyndromeSigns of bloat:The abdomen is obviously distended, especially on the left side.Signs of discomfort such as "mawing", kicking or grinding their teeth. DepressionIn more serious forms: difficulty breathing.
Syringes and Needles 22g 1/2" to 20g 1"
Are 20 &22 gauge needles what I want for nigerians?
Rosie Ramsey Yes. The bigger the gauge the smaller the needle. Some use 18g but that is really big. Others like 20 g for penicillin but I like the smaller ones. Just what works best for you. Also most meds are best given SQ instead of IM
Maggie Leman I use 20 gauge 1 inch needles for everything. You do not have to insert the needle all the way on kids, but you will use almost that entire length on adults to get the medication delivered all the way UNDER the skin. A 1/2 inch needle is going to be hard to get all the way under the skin of an adult goat, even on some kids. When I was taught how to give injections to people I was told never to insert a needle to the hub. I keep 1 cc, 3 cc, 6 cc, 12 cc syringes. I also keep some 20 cc and 60 cc syringes for drenching. I have pygmies, Nubians and some Kinders. Most people when giving SQ injections do not go deep enough or at a steep enough angle to get all the way under the skin. This results in lumps and bumps. I haven;t given an IM injection in YEARS. Nearly all meds can go SQ on goats even ones labeled IM. The veterinary drug industry is getting away from IM drugs as it causes damage to muscle tissue which results in damage to the carcass and waste when processed.Hide or report this
Procaine Penicillin G Over the counter.Keep refrigerated use a 20 or 22 gauge needle Shake well Inject SQ or IM at room temp (just what is in syringe) This is used to treat Listeriosis. It can also be used for other illness as well. Infections, colds, uterine infections, pneumonia etc. Now there are other choice that might be better for certain illnesses but this is a good emergency drug.
Vit B is over the counter. 1cc per 20 pounds SQ Thiamine is BEST but you need a prescription. This is used to treat Goat Polio (Polioencephalomalacia) and you MUST start treatment immediately. This is also used for thiamine deficiency Symptoms include: weak back legs, staggering, confusion, star gazing (looking upwards, stretching the neck), diarrhea, muscle tremors, convulsions, circling, and blindness and depression. In the later stages, the goat is unable to stand or rise up, death will follow.
Rosie Ramsey most meds anthelmintics are not labeled for goats
Maggie Leman Manufacturers have to go through a thorough and expensive process to get drugs approved by the FDA for each species. Goats are considered a minor species of less economic importance in the US. It is just not economically feasible to get approval for most drugs for goats.
CMPK Calcium, Magnisium, Potasium, Zinc used to treat hypocalcemia
Calcium Drench for treating Hypocalcemia
Molasses available in grocery store. Black Strap is best but not always easy to find.Used to treat anemia also treats ketosis/toxemia. Gives weak animals a boost.
Goat Nutridrench oral vitamins and minerals. Used for treating ketosis and weak goats.
Milk of Magnesia ~ MOM used with Actiavated Charcoal for poisoning 15cc per 60 pounds repeat in 4-6 hours as needed
Activated Charcoal for poisoning. You can also use aquarium charcoal if no other is available 1 tablespoon mix with tiny bit of water to make a slurry. Then in one hour follow with milk of magnesia.
