This thought just crossed my mind when I was re-reading the thread: Can goats get Menengial worm? I know its a big problem with llamas (causing paralysis in the rear, ect.)because it effects the spinal cord, and evnetuially the central nervous system.

Do you have alot of deer in your area, and have had really wet weather? or lots of slugs in your barnyard? I know that most cases I hear of happen in wet weather as slugs crawl through deer droppings (deer are a carrier) then if they get ingested by accident in wet foliage or grass... the host animal gets infected.

Just a thought.. Prob not the problem, but a thought none the less.
