Polycythemia in goats??!!
My goat has just been diagnosed with polycythemia. Of course my vet, who by the way is wonderful, can't find anything on this in goats. protein +, creatinine -, glucose 39 (50-75 norm), RBC way +.
He will get fluids tomorrow a.m. then blood drawn p.m.
I guess I'm not sure when enough is enough. If the RBC doesn't come down and we can't get the glucose up that's bad news. The thing is he doesn't have a single pulmonary issue.
We have a dog that's very sick, our blind pony was just diagnosed with a tumor (poss brain/eye). Don't think I can afford this!!! How can I justify putting him down if he isn't "sick". We are worried that the low glucose will cause him to have a seizure!!
