    Dog with bump on eye...what is it and what can I do?

    So we just noticed that our 8.5 year old lab/coonhound has this bump on her eyelid. You can't see it unless you pull her eyelid up. Our dogs in the past have gotten tumors in different places as they aged, and I'm wondering if this is what it is...does anyone have experience with this, or think...

    About Mini Alpines

    Okay, thank you for the information:) My mini alpines are 50:50, and they are 8 months old right now. The doe passed up my Nigerian Dwarf does in size a while ago, and the wether is a bit bigger. I haven't weighed them, but I'll have to. I do have a buck, but he isn't full grown yet, and doesn't...

    About Mini Alpines

    I am new to mini alpines, and I have a few questions. Since Alpine's are seasonal breeders and Nigerian Dwarf's can be bred all year round, can my mini alpine doe be bred all year round, or just seasonally? Also, when is the earliest that you should breed a doeling? Is 10 months too early? My...

    Is my dog pregnant?

    Okay, thanks for all the info. I have no experience in pregnant dogs, etc. I believe she was in heat shortly before we left her. Our friend said that she never saw any male dogs around, but they did leave her alone at their house for short periods of time. So it is difficult for me to know since...

    Is my dog pregnant?

    We were on a trip this summer, and had a friend watch our female dog at their house. This was end of June through the end of July. This past week we have noticed her mammary glands getting bigger. Today we noticed milk dripping out of one of them. Our dog is about 8 years old, and she has never...

    Do you think my goats got bred?

    I have a mini Alpine buckling, who is about two months old. I have kept him separate from my does so that he doesn't breed them, because I have heard that bucks can breed at 6 weeks of age. Last night he somehow got out of his cage, and in with 2 of my Nigerian Dwarf 1 year old does. I did not...

    Is there any way to prevent scurs?

    I plan on keeping him, and I will band him soon. I also have never banded a goat before, is 8 weeks old about right for banding him? I watched some videos online, so I should be able to get it figured out otherwise. The one picture is highlighted where his horns were growing back before, and...

    Is there any way to prevent scurs?

    I was going to take a picture when I went out to the barn this evening, but forgot, so I will post a picture Monday. So you said that the scurs that were the edges would work off easily once bigger, do you mean easily burnt off, or would they come off by themselves? I am sorta new to this all...

    Is there any way to prevent scurs?

    I have a mini alpine buckling born February 11th, and we disbudded him and his sister at 3 weeks old. I know that it was later then it should have been, but I forgot that we were going to dehorn the babies until they were already 3 weeks old. We burned them off the best we could. The doelings...

    Is my goat pregnant?

    I have an Alpine doe, who was exposed to a billy goat August 18-September 18. I normally would have left her in with him longer, but I wasn't able to with life the way it was.

    So do all fainting goats faint over loud noises, and the reason my goats don't is because they are mixed breeds?

    Goat Just Kidded, Diarrhea

    She had twins last year, and took care of them just fine, I will put her in the milk stand in a little bit, and squirt out some milk, and make sure that her teats aren't clogged. She is in a birthing stall right now with her babies, my other goat that kidded the same day with triplets is doing fine.

    Goat Just Kidded, Diarrhea

    I noticed that the babies start to nurse, but as soon as they bump her to let down more milk, that's when she walks away, cuz otherwise she's taking care of them. And her diarrhea isn't horribly bad, but when she poops, it splats onto the ground and doesn't have a form. And does it take a while...

    Goat Injury

    I put triple antibiotic on her eyelids. But I have 4 smallish stalls in my barn, and it would be too many goats in one area, so I separate them, but the goat that got these wounds is actually with her sister in the same stall. But they are separated, because they are Nubians, and the other goats...
