Well.....you've got a handle on it!! 👍 You know to watch. I'd give more bicarb. Won't hurt, so if more help that's good. 🥰. Besides ornery deserves it !

Amen sistah!
Wonder if apple cider vinegar would work ( though not as quickly) in his water bucket. If so, how much?
He seems to be drinking water ok and is nibbling on hay. Even tried to run one of the other goats out of the barn so he must be improving. (fingers crossed)

I drench 2c of vegetable oil to play it safe because standard bloat treatments won’t treat foamy bloat but common veg oil rids it almost immediately
I’ve used mineral oil, I like the vegetable oil idea better. Me being me, I probably Overdid it. I’ve had one ewe to bloat and I drenched her until she was farting it out the other end. LOL I also walked her a couple of hours, like you do with a colic horse. She sure was glad to see me go back to the house.
