Caprine Vital Signs - Physiological Data

When dealing with the overall health of goats, there are a few basics that everyone should be familiar with. Most humans know that our normal body temperature is 98.6F. We also know that our blood pressure should be 120/80 to be considered within a normal range. Similarly, goats have their own vital readings that are considered within "normal" ranges. The table below will help you become familiar of what to expect when determining your goats health. Many of the Capri-Medics on GoatWorld and other individuals who are willing to help a goat in time of need will most often ask one simple question right off the bat - "what is your goats temperature?".
