I have disbudded quite a few Nubian and Nigerian kids - never Saanens - well, I did my first Saanen doe kids, and the one kid's clearly didn't take - I retained her and do not want horns, but I do not want to do her harm, either. I can redo it under sedation with xylazine but my vet doesn't have the Tolazine (what would reverse the effects of the xylazine) for me to buy and I can't afford a $120 bottle for one kid - While I know the risks, the 30 year breeder of Saanens I have purchased from and greatly respect has never had any issues and has always used this combo on her kids. . . However, I never have used any sedatives with the goats - I know the doses she uses and can't see doing a kid that is 5 weeks old without sedation - anyone able to chime in with experience fixing a botched disbudding? Is it too late? Has anyone used xylazine without the Yohimbine/Tolazine to reverse the sedation without issue? My vet felt a low dose of xylazine would be ok on its own. . . but I am just not sure.
