Customer Question

Hi! I've never been on this site before.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the large animal?
Customer: She is actually an alpine fairy goat. She's about 12 ish and had about six owners before I got her in 2009. Anyway I was in the barn tonight and she's breathing fast almost panting. But shallow breathing.
JA: What is the goat's name?
Customer: I realized I had left the water bucket run dry (I'm so ashamed of that but I guess you need the truth). I filled the bucket and she drank a lot and she has commandeered a salt block
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the goat?
Customer: her named Maud.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How is Maud now? Any improvement to her breathing?

Are her gums pink or pale/white?

Any weakness or fever?

Any coughing, sneezing, or nasal discharge?
