How do I know if my goat has edema or mastitis? She kidded 6 days ago but her bag is hard though giving a small amount of milk which is not clumpy or stringy.

Our goats seem to like leaves of lilac and have not gotten sick so still not sure about the plants. My babies nibble on lilac leaves and I try to keep them from eating those leaves but still kids go back to lilac. It’s in their pen

I am wondering about some basic procedures on adopting some Nigerian Dwarf goats. I currently have three goats ( 2 female 1 male-all Nigerian dwarf). Tomorrow I plan on adopting three more from an unfit home. That being said I am concerned about bringing disease into a seemingly healthy herd. What are some important signs I should look out for when visiting the goats tomorrow? I have a quarantine area ready for them but I am unsure when I could merge them together. Are there behavioral things I should look out for as well when merging my herd? The new goats will be all three females ranging from a few months old to two years. Thank you for your help.

Hi, I read somewhere that, if tube feeding is necessary on pre-term or newborn kids, the tubed colostrum should go into the second stomach, not the first. What happens if it goes into the first? Is urination a sign that the kid could process the milk? Couldn’t find answers to this anywhere. Thank you for your time and expertise, Susanne

At what age should I vaccinate my Dwarf/Pygmy cross kid? Also the vial says 2ml is that an adult dose or a dose for all sizes? Do I give a booster again a month later? Side question I live on the boarder of Preble and Montgomery county which office would I utilize for future questions? Thank you for this service.

Could you tell me if there is a way to tell if a goat has been vaccinated for CL or currently has the disease if the health history is unknown and there are no current signs of the disease? I understand that both ways will produce a positive result and the breeder stock I am looking to purchase claims to be vaccinates. I would like to be as sure as possible, that I am not bring a sick animal into an unvaccinated herd that is clear of CL.
