Goats/Re: Migi


Hi Donna,
Update on Migi - Migi still dosen't look & feel right i mean hes eating, peeing, pooping clump berries but not as active like he was the wind has calm down but forecast to start up again tommorrow i just took his temp at its 102.3 is that normal? i've been giving him his vitamin b-complex with his duramycin & a little more than his usual probiotic paste but he still looks depress and not as active so i don't know whats going on. Thanks Donna.

Me & Migi

Well, the good thing is that is is eating, drinking, peeing and pooping.  And, his temperature is good, remember anything over 102.5 can indicate an infection.  Does he look bloated at all? His digestive system could still be out of sorts just enough to cause him not to feel totally well.  What your doing for him is fine. Would just continue watching him - Donna
