Hi, welcome to Just Answer. This is Dr Beverly Chevallier, and I would like to help you with your goat today. I am sorry you are having concerns with Lala vomiting and being sick.

I have been a practicing veterinarian for awhile, and I would like to try to help you. First, I need some information. Provide as many details as possible about your situation and I will be glad to try to help.

Where do you live and what is the weather like there? That could be important. (And I’m very curious to know where you live and what your weather is like there, too…)

Unfortunately, we are unable to prescribe medications on this site, but we can offer alternatives to prescription products and we can help you find them in the stores near you.

This is not a full service veterinary service, so we are not able to physically examine your animal, but you can send pictures and videos and they are immensely helpful with our diagnoses and will greatly aid in the accurate advice we give to you about your animal.

Just Answer will ask you if you want a phone call.  You are under no obligation to accept that.  I will be glad to talk to you on the phone if you prefer, but I will also be glad to keep chatting via text.

The more information I have, the more likely I will be able to assist you. Thank you. Dr Beverly Chevallier.

How often is Lala vomiting?

Is she able to stand up?

Is she eating today?

OK great. She has stopped vomiting. She is standing up. She is baying at me. She has eaten today all day in the pasture.

If she just vomited once or twice, she should be ok.  Sometimes that happens when they eructate their cud.  She should be ok.

Oh OK should we give baking soda or anything. Or just watch her.

Just watch her.  Please keep me updated.

OK thank you. Where are u from ?

You are welcome.  I'm in NW Arkansas.

Wonderful thank you . It's reassuring ..I have been trying to find a vet for my animals on the farm forever. I just stumbled across your service. Thanks again.

Karen, you are very welcome.  Please let me know if I can ever help you.  Just text back here.
