Tammy...was it's mother given selenium during her pregnancy? If not, it could be white muscle disease and it needs a shot of BoSe sub-q. Also...I had a doeling do this, but was told that it was 'goat polio' and I had to give her sub-q injections of vit.B 4 times a day. Don't quite remember the dose though..... Go to Fiascofarm.com or Saanandoah.com, you will find the dosages there. Hope this helps.... Kim PS.... most of the regulars have moved over to 'Dairygoats::index.com'
