I have a question. Does this cost money to get an answer?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

My goat is acting very strange. He is straining like he wants to poop and crying in a very strange way.

Good Morning, and thanks for your question. I apologize for the time it has taken you to receive a response. I’ve been offline, out working, and just signed on and saw your post.

Do you still need some help with your goat? Are you still seeing the same problems?

Please let me know, I’m happy to help.

Sincerely,

Dan C., DVM.
