Yes, you can use penicillin..it will fight the bacterial nasty stuff that polio will render into the system, however, it's faster to react to Nuflor than penicillin.

Along with this Thiamine treatment, we also dosed out massive amounts of B-Complex.  The b-complex helps to bind the Thiamine, as well as it also contains Thiamine, but not enough to treat polio with.

This treatment isn't a one time treatment..this treatment is given around the clock..for many, many days to come.  Polio is nasty as it will return when you think it's been licked, and healed..take caution, don't stop treatments too soon.

 Grin Grin  Tracy you're funny!!  These are things that happens to goats along our herding time.  Some folks may never experience FKS, because they are in a higher selenium area..like Sandie, she's in an area that is on the dangerous high side, given any more selenium and it could be overdosing and causing death.

You would could also dose out BoSe or Vit E gel w/Selenium.  It takes the Vit E to bind the selenium to the system.  Usually it's a one time dosage.  The kid should show signs of improvement within a few hours of administering the Vit E gel w/selenium.

Good job you guys!! Smiley

Onto our next one.

Symptoms

Newly purchased 2 yr old Pygmy Doe, she's been here about a month.
Won't eat.  Tried giving her grain and hay but she's ignoring it.
She looks fine, has a healthy weight on her, she was eating up until yesterday.  Toes are a little long and needs more trimming. 
I gave her 3cc's nutri drench the day she, and her sisters arrived.
She has a normal body temp. She's in with 3 other does that we purchased at the same time from the same seller.
She's walking the fence line bellowing in this awful sounding "baa" and is going hoarse. 
She's waving her tail and being just nasty to the other girls.
She has a slight discharge on her vulva and a little crusty yucky stuff on her tail hairs.
I wormed her and the others 3 days after we got them.
I also noticed that her stools are now clumped like dog poo' instead of goatie pellets.
She use to be very friendly and now she's  standoffish and doesn't really want to come to me when I call her.  The other two aren't behaving this way, they are eating just dandy and just as friendly as the day I bought them.

What am I?  What do I do?
