I have a 2 day old Pygmy

Customer Question

I have a 2 day old Pygmy buckling that is very lethargic. when he try's to stand he is nuckled over and head down. I have been bottle feeding him every 3 hr half goat electrolyte and whole milk. He started urinating and pooping this morning. Poop is pretty runny. Last night I gave him only electrolyte he was pretty perky this morning but now he is just laying still. He is eating about an ounce to ounce and a half.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today. Is he taking the bottle readily? Is it a goat specific milk?Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?If you press on his belly, does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?What color is the diarrhea?Does he knuckle constantly or just intermittently?Any circling, head tilt, fever, tremors, head pressing into things?
