azalea

Azalea isn't feeling well. She was off her feed last night, and today I've spoken with the vet and spent the day doing everything that can be done to help her feel better, with no apparent improvement by evening.



Now there's a cold rain falling, everyone is settled for the night, and all I can do is hope Azalea has a comfortable night and will feel more herself in the morning.
Not eating is a very serious matter with goats.

Fingers crossed.

  5. Just a quick noontime update:
    over the past 6 hours, Azalea has been very gradually persuaded to eat a total of: two small handfuls of chopped alfalfa, a few wisps of hay, slices of half an apple, and a few carrot pennies. Not even a snack by normal standards, but at least it's something. She is very unwell, but I'm hoping she is feeling a bit better than she was yesterday. Thank you so much for your kind thoughts on Azalea's behalf!

  6. After reading your most recent post I had to come back and read your Azalea posts. I didn't realize she had been so sick. So glad she is doing better.
