Hi. I have two male goats aged four months. One of my guys is shaking (it’s not cold here) and lethargic today. His temperature is 101.7 which I understand is normal. He will eat a little from my hand. The only abnormality I found was that his prepuce was covered by shavings. When I removed them there was a bit of pus underneath-unless four month old goats produce smegma. Please help!

Are your little goats wethers? Have you seen him urinate recently? Urinary calculi can be a big problem in male goats. It happens more frequently in males that were neutered a young age. I hope that's not what you're dealing with because it can (and usually is) very serious. If that's what it is I hope you can get him some veterinary attention.
