    This is Genevieve posting for Madeleine.

    Madeleine is at camp, and her brother wanted to be extra helpful while she's gone. He took her buckling out to spend time with him, then put him up in a stall that had laying pellets in it. I think there were 2-4 cups of pellets in there which he ate He is a ND goat.

    We gave him some vegetable oil, and we are keeping an eye on him. What else do we need to do?

    Well I would have skipped the veggie oil
    get some probios down him and B Vit
    put some baking soda out for him and just watch him close for bloating etc.

    he will probably get diarreah I wouldn't do anything for it but keep him hydrated and let him get the toxins out of his system.

    He is still acting fine this morning. Maybe he ate less of it than I thought.

    That is good a little really won't hurt him but what I finally did was the chickens now get goat grain.
