Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry to hear about your girl...I know this is very stressful on you and her...
You have done everything great so far and be sure to change this wrap daily and give the antibiotic injection daily. Your poor little girl is very painful from the bruising caused by this injury so the best thing you can do is to give aspirin to her at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs. This will decrease the discomfort that your little girl is experiencing from this injury.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please Reply so I can clarify for you
Sincerely, XXXXX XXXXX
Is there a specific ATB you recommend for the injection.... Would Tri + Care be good to put on...or just continue with over the counter ATB ointment...? I heard Manuka Honey is good for wounds?
Thank you so much, Stacey for your kind rating. It is very much appreciated! Do not hesitate to contact me with any other concerns that you may have about your girl's condition. If you have other questions, please Reply. Young goats are not very hearty and you may have to provide supportive care such as fluids and force feed until she is feeling better.
Have a great day!!
