    White Muscle Disease - Help!

    We've given newborn nigerians 1/4 cc of BoSe. And then maybe another 1/4 cc the 2nd day afterwards. We give our does 1cc about a month before they kid. We did have a kid die once when it was about 3 days old and the necropsy indicated WMD. She was the smallest of quads.

    Nigerian dwarf goats
