You can order you ammonium chloride right here at goatworl. I would give him a tablespoon per day, just put it in a syinge with water and a little kero syrup or pancake syrup, for at least a week, then whatever grain you are giving him, just put 1 teaspoon over the top of it once a day. It keeps the bladder acids down, and keeps stones from forming. It won't hurt anything if this is not what it is.

You do not add water to milk in a bottle, it changes the composition of the fat, and can actually cause diarrhea. He is old enough to wean, so just stop the bottles completely, he is way old enough to be drinking water from a bucket, if you enjoy the bottles than just make them water bottles, no milk. And....having said that I have had bucks drink out of a lambar when they were 1 year old!

Without him acting like his belly is hurting, or some other symptom, I doubt this is blood you are seeing, unless it is an injury to the sheath itself. I would also guess he has eaten something different, and watching my bucks pee each day sometimes their pee can be very concentrated, orange looking. A little corn and oats once a day is the perfect feed for your wether, grass hay, and fresh clean water.

If he does have a fever, anything over 103 in this heat, than I would get him on a sulfa from the vet like SMTZ for urinary tract infection. But put him on the ammonium chloride now! Vicki
