Good morning,

Yesterday, my husband noticed bailing twine hanging out of our Oberhashli's mouth. He pulled out about three feet, but then the goat was uncomfortable, so Hubby cut the string off at his mouth. We don't know how much is still in him. We just lost his brother last month due to urinary calculi. It was devastating. We love these guys.

Do you think he will be alright? I'm very worried.

Thanks!

Holly

Please keep us updated. You might contact your vet about giving him a laxative.

Well, it's been a while and he seems perfectly fine. If there was going to be a problem, shouldn't it have happened by now? And THANK YOU all for your helpful and caring replies.
