Coughing goat
« on: November 08, 2007, 08:10:04 am »
We have two Toggenberg goats, one of which has been coughing. Having read up and asking around we wormed with Ivermectin drench as our "working diagnosis" is lungworm.

My question is how long before we can expect to see the coughing improve? She is otherwise well, and milking well ( we are discarding milk for 14 days). Or, what other conditions should we then consider.....or are we being neurotic newbie goat owners? ::)

Hey thought you could contact the following if you havent already:

www.allgoats.com

Its the website for the british goat society so they should be able to help you, if not have you tried your vet?

Richard -

did you get a diagnosis for your goats? I would be interested in the outcome since we have 18 goats and it is always useful to have new info that we may need ourselves in the future.

Thanks, Kate
