DVM Update on TootleLu



We went to the Vet in Jefferson (NC), 2 hrs roundtrip, not counting office-visit time. Mike drove and TootleLu rode in my lap going over. We also took Sundance, and she rode in the back with him on the return. Dr. Beckworth thinks Toot has trauma to her ankle/leg, maybe fell off something onto her back and has a bad sprain. We do have a lot of things to jump on sitting around, and like I said previously, we call her our acrobat. Doc said to keep her confined for 6-8 weeks. The other girls are just gonna have to take turns babysitting her in the small stall. Dr. Beckworth didn't put anything on her ankle but I'm thinking I wish I had a customized boot for her - as in, if she stood up to walk, she'd have to stand on the hoof rather than the ankle folded over. He gave her a shot in the hip, and we'll see if that helps.


When we arrived back home, boy was she hollering for her buddies.


I have taken Sundance to the Vet twice now to have him checked out. The Doc examined his poop, blood, took his temp, listened to his lungs, and says everything is fine. But, Sundance is a puny squirt and always has that disheveled look about him. I made an appt to get him castrated, Dr. Beckworth doesn't believe in banding. Poor Sundance. Then we'll have two wethers and I'm only willing to sell in pairs anyway.

Take good care of these two little precious beings. TootleLu will really be spoiled when this is over. She's going to want to be treated very special.

It looks positive for Toot and that is a good thing. I just love the pics of your goats and IF I had the room I would love to have a couple. Oh, well I am still blessed.

Oh, so sweet little things. Our contractor has a bunch of animals, and he just loves his goats so much that he's always telling us about them!

Poor baby. 6-8 weeks is a long time for a little acrobat goatie to be stalled while she heals. I hope she heals up quickly. Poor you. I know you've been worried about her. But what a good goat mama and daddy you both are.

Poor little kids! I am very glad TootleLu has a positive forecast, but good luck with keeping her down! Wish I could give both of them hugs in person.

Sounds promising at least. You could probably fix an "air cast" of some sort. Good luck!!!

Aw, how absolutely adorable, Joanna. I hope all works out well for you and the little cuties.
