Hi Kim,

I'm taking a stab in the dark at this one so anyone else reading this, please correct me if I'm wrong.

I am thinking this may be a precursor to Urinary Calculi. It could be possible that stones are forming and one broke loose and punctured the passageway. You may want to treat him with Penicillin to combat any infection that may be present - it could also be some type of urinary tract infection as well.

Either way this is not something I would wait long on reacting too as you may prevent a terrible outcome by acting now. You may want to consider calling any of the people listed on the Goat911 page or consult a vet immediately.

If it is Urinary Calculi, you will need to begin immediate treatment with Ammonium Chloride either in his water (which I would limit at this point) or as a top dressing on his feed - administered at 1 tablespoon per day. I mix Ammonium Chloride in all of our bucks drinking water at approximately 1 teaspoon per 5 gallons daily.

You mentioned feeding him hay, is there anything else that you have been feeding him as well?

I certainly hope this is not Urinary Calculi but I would certainly in either case consider getting him set up onthe Ammonium Chloride which is really a good idea for any of the bucks.

Best regards,

Gary Pfalzbot
