Menigital worm in goats
Becky is having trouble on the ridge with her goat.If it is a menigital worm it affects their central nervous system.This is what Ringo looked like back in April of 2007 when he had it.He looked as though he had a stroke,his head fell to the side & he couldn`t stand upright.I was so sure we would lose him,the vet said they rarely make a recovery & the meds he was going to give him would make his meat uneatable.I said,what?!!! I would never eat my pets!!!! I will have to ask about what meds he gave him,it took him a couple of weeks to recover,but he did make a full recovery.The one pic shows him as he couldn`t even stand up,the second is a week after & he was beginning to recover.The vet said he may never hold his head upright again,but thank the dear Lord he made a full recovery.
