She was fine...until today. Was out giving feed and they always come when I yell hey. Today Red didn't come. And those who have goats know that means trouble.

She looks like she literally could pop. Along with mass on neck, hard, which again was not there 24 hrs ago. My girls have always been fluffy, but this is EXTREME. Almost like she is having trouble breathing. I can see her belly "moving" on the left side, which she is larger on. Not pregnant.

Help? Advice? What might I have at home that will help her bloat?

Update. Gave her 20 mL of mineral oil incase of bloat. I was planning on 60-120 mL but she struggled so hard to swallow the first 20, I stopped. She was choking. Though she is able to drink water. Rules out obstruction?

She sound like she can't breathe, making growling sounds with each forced breath. I will see how she is in the am. If she makes it through.

She only "sounded" aspirated. I dont know how else to explain it. Even before the administration mineral oil.
