Post: RE: Urinary Calculi Medication Treatment

My understanding from the vet is that the overall idea is to reduce agitation/pain/relax urethral area so the stones can pass. I'm familiar with Phenazopyridine - it is an older medication used to re...

Wow, thanks for sharing that crazy story. Both versions. I find all of this hard to believe.  There is something there, enough for WDFW to have initiated this action - request for actual documents mi...

good to know. Is this incident supposedly an actual, documented transmission of m. ovi or just an encounter? And pack goats, not just a domestic goat herd?

Post: RE: Cracked Hooves - Drought?

Oh wow, good to know! Yes, neither of my boys is acting sore and we did a 2 day trip last M/T. Pretty soft/good trails on that trip. OK, so we're not done for the summer yippee!

Post: Cracked Hooves - Drought?

Two questions - 1) Is it OK to pack a goat with a crack in his hoof wall?  (I'm assuming not)  2) Drought can cause a cracked hoof, yes? I'm in western WA and we have been having the longest drou...

Yikes, hope you get warmer weather soon. They're predicting a cool spring for PNW. Also hope that broken eye socket has healed well, and some better luck is moving your way!

Quite the story! Hope the leg is OK. Pretty low key here - took the goats for a hike instead of shopping on Black Friday.
