Greetings, and thanks for the question.
Sorry to hear about Molly, but one thing in her favor is that Holly plants are not toxic to goats. I do have a few questions for you, however, so that I can answer your question more thoroughly.
1): What type of pain does Molly seem to be experiencing?
2): How long ago did she eat the plant?
3): Are you noticing any foaming from her mouth or nose?
4): Have you noticed her grinding her teeth?
Thanks, ***** ***** looking forward to hearing from you.
