Whats wrong with my goat?
We have a goat who seems to have pain in his front feet (possibly legs, hard to be sure). He alternatly lifts his front feet off the ground I assume to get weight off them because they hurt. His legs will also sometimes quiver when he stands up. He lays down a lot more than usual and only sometimes follows his friends down the run. We've had him off grass for 2 weeks, and had the vet out 3 times. He was treated with penicillin for a week (foot rot or infection) with no improvement and and is now on a medicine to improve the circulation in his feet (laminitis)for the last week with no improvement. He has been on pain meds for the entire two weeks and is still "prancing" and acting like there is pain. The vet maintains its laminitis, but there was never any heat in his feet and with no improvement I'm beginning to doubt his diagnosis. Any ideas? We've got 2 other goats that are fine, no problems at all. Please help! Thanks a lot.
