Well, that explains a lot! Kept reading about injectables, never seeing anything on orals other than bolusing. Info I needed, didn't know I needed it! I used to have injectable Banamine, years ago, from a horse that got real sick and couldn't give him oral stuff. But, it went out of date a long time ago.
The baby is doing okay, even went for a walk this morning. She's a little subdued, not her normal, bouncy self. Keeps hiding in the goat shelter. And she hates me at the moment.
Won't come near me if she can avoid it. I've been catching her to clean and treat the ear with Swat, things she'd rather not deal with at all. Her face his pretty pink from all the struggling she does to avoid me touching the ear. I'm without any help this weekend, so I have to restrain and treat all at once. There may be a little flap that I'll have to have cut off later. For the moment, I'm just preventing infection and trying to help her through the painful part.
I will call the vet in the morning. I'm sure they'll sell me a vial of Banamine. I have a very good, long relationship with this practice. I can pretty much get anything I need from them just by asking.
Thank you, Vicki, for your response!
