Customer Question

Customer: I have 1 horse and 3 goats in a large area. I found 1 goat dead this morning with blood and a lot of foam having come out of his nose. What could have caused him to die?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: No. He did not have any symptoms yesterday. He is about 7 years old, found him dead.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Large Animal Veterinary Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
