Bringing Home Your New Kid 

Whether you are shopping for your first goats, or adding to your herd, picking out a new kid (or three) is always exciting.  So you've found your kid and you're ready to go pick him or her up.  Are you prepared?  Here are my thoughts on preparing for and picking up your new kid.

Before going to pick up your kid:
If you are asking your seller to vaccinate or deworm/delouse your kid, ask that this be done several days prior to your scheduled pickup to give the kids time to recover from the stress.

Locate a goat veterinarian in your area if you don't already have one.  Call and introduce yourself, get your information entered as a new client and learn their emergency numbers and hours.


First Aid Kit For Goats  

A first aid kit for goats can be a real lifesaver.  Generally, I divide first aid supplies into 2 categories - those that are for critical life-saving intervention where seconds count, and those that you have time to go to the store and purchase (although they should be kept on hand if possible)

Your goat can die within seconds or minutes from just a few things. Severe blood loss, shock, snake bite, allergic reaction or poisoning. read more... , in, , !  read more...
