Treatment high doses of procaine penicillin
(300,000 International Unit strength) every six hours.
Higher-than-normal dosage of procaine penicillin is
needed to cross the blood brain barrier to put
sufficient amounts of the antibiotic into the tissue of
the goat's central nervous system. Give the procaine
pencillin SQ over the ribs with an 18 gauge needle so
the goat doesn't become a pin cushion of holes from
repeated injections during this intensive treatment.
DOSAGE: 1.5 cc to 25lbs; 6 cc per 100 lbs;
12cc/200 lbs etc
also indicated for Listeria, dosage is 5 cc per 100 lbs.
( cortico-steroid) MIGHT be indicated, but can
cause abortions, which might happen anyway due to
infection. Dexamethasone dosage is 5 to 6 cc per 100
pounds bodyweight given IM in decreasing amounts daily.
Example: Goat is 100 pounds liveweight. Dosage is 6 cc
into the muscle on Day One, 5 cc on Day Two, 4 cc on Day
Three, 3 cc on Day Four, 2 cc on Day Five, one cc on Day
Six, nothing on Day Seven. If the goat is over 100
pounds, drop dosages daily in increments of two or three
cc's. Larger goat decrease by 2cc or more
depending on size/weight.
Thiamine is the only effective therapy, dosage is 5
cc per 100 lbs.
WITH BOTH LISTERIA
and Polio, continue treatment for 24 hours PAST last
observed symptom to prevent relapse.
BACH FLOWER REMEDIES.
These work on the principle of healing the whole goat
again rather than just the particular disease which is
affecting them at this time. They seek to heal the
physical body by creating emotional and psychological
happiness and well-being.
They are prepared by exposing freshly-picked flowers and
pure spring water to the beneficial rays of the sun. The
resulting "mother tincture" is then bottled
and diluted to produce the bottles we can buy. Taking
the remedies is simple. Just add two drops from the
bottle to a glass of water or fruit juice and sip slowly. The
bottles contain small droppers so, in an emergency (or
the easiest way to treat a goat) just drop a couple of
spots straight into the mouth.
There are 38 Bach Remedies and if you want to study them
all they are easy to find online but the most well-known
one is Rescue Remedy which is a combination of 5
The 5 remedies in Rescue Remedy are...
STAR OF BETHLEHEM...to cope with the initial shock
CHERRY PLUM..............to counteract feelings of
ROCK ROSE..................to ease feelings of panic and
IMPATIENS..................to soothe stress and tension
CLEMATIS....................to prevent the light-headed
feeling which often comes before loss of consciousness.
Dr Bach is supposed to have brought a drowned fisherman
back from the dead with Rescue Remedy but maybe that is
just going a bit too far! However it is wonderful to
create calm, reduce anxiety, cope with shock etc etc.
It's useful for anything from a grazed knee to a major
accident and everything in between and I always have a
bottle in the kitchen, one in the car, one in my bag and
one in the barn...just in case!
