    Hi

    Can someone diagnose this for me? Is it due to worms? Goat is a buckling around 2 months old

    I really have no clue, but a fecal would be the best way to check for worms. Sorry I can't help you.

    Could the animal have eaten some cordage of some sort? like nylon rope? something undigestible that the pellets would form around forming a chain? I guess you could pull them apart and see. :idunno Maybe you can collect the chains up and dry them out and sell them to tourists as Sri Lankan necklaces? :hide:D

    Mine gets strings like that sometimes, I generally don't worry about it. I've heard that it's mucous from a small piece of intestinal lining shedding, which can mean stress, worms, or diet change. But not to worry if they're otherwise healthy. A fecal never hurts.
