    Ok so we got two 1 moth old boy goats yesterday and have only had them for about a day and we noticed that there stomach is pulsing kinda like heavy breathing but we are not sure why and at points they will start to shake from there stomach and back . We checked there temp and they are normal and they have been eating so in not quiet sure what the problem is. Any advice or help is appreciated they also seemed very streessed if anyone knows anything in couod do about that

    Are their stomachs bloated ?
    Are they pooping?
    How much and what are you feeding them?
    What are you giving them in their bottle to drink ?
    Can you contact the "breeder" for help ?
    Were they castrated or banded ?
    Wishing you luck with your kids, the move and change can stress them some, particularly if they were dam fed and switched to a bottle suddenly......
