Need help with a Nubian kid
We need help with a 5-week old buckling with something caught in his throat (apparently). He has already been to the vet to the tune of $210 but doesn't seem much better. We thought he perhaps had some kind of pneumonia, but the vet says it is an obstruction. He sedated the little guy and suctioned him, but he doesn't seem much better. He refuses to eat because he chokes and is unable to breathe when he tries to drink milk. We have been giving Ringer's Lactate solution subcutaneously to keep him hydrated, but we have never seen this before and have no idea what else to do. Please give us any ideas that you have on this, because we are stumped and don't want him to slowly starve.
