Local anesthetic around the site to be cut on etc. is fine. But when you use anesthesia on a goat they can react very badly from it, take an incredible amount of time to come around from it, and also have respiratory distress and die during it. Have simply seen, and heard about it to often to ever allow it. My vet even does c-sections on goats with just local xylocaine shots, the does bounce back much quicker, have much less chance of aspiration pnemonia from inhaling the contents of their rumen when down.

Back when we had abscess, I accidently poked a needlefull of xylocaine through my hand, it was asleep for hours, so I know the goats are feeling no pain during castration, dehorning, csections or abscess removal when it is being used.

And I actually applaud you for asking questions, don't believe anything about Goats you hear and little you read :) Unless you have read the book to your goats! Vicki
