Question
there is symptom of 1-high fever 2- swelling of eye lids with lcarmal secreation 3- respiratory disorder (caugh-crack sound of lung) what can this be? 4- infection others goat

Answer
Anton,
This is upper respiratory infection. It may be infectious to other goats. The goat with symptoms needs to be started on antibiotics as soon as possible. I don't know what you have there in Egypt. You can put terramycin ointment in eyes. What injectable antibiotics do you have available? Penicillin may work.
