Thanks for that, I'll get some ceto-phyton tomorrow.
I gave the calcium, and drenched with twin lamb drench and vit/mineral supplement.
As you describe very fussy, for a goat who's usually very greedy is worrying.

Ceto-phyton and twin-lamb drench do the same thing, so if your goat takes the lamb drench you can probably continue with that. It's just I found they took the ceto-phyton  easier (and I have a single dose drenching gun - like syringe but with drenching attachment at the front). No way would I be able to get anything down them with the spout that is attached to the twin-lamb drench.  :sheep: are sooooo much easier to drench than  :goat: .....

She doesn't take it willingly, but then again she doesn't do anything I want her to do willingly. :roflanim:
