Another Round of Copper

5 Jul

I did give copper to all of the goats before I left.

It was not made easier by some bratty goats like Bubbles who decided to chew it up and spit it out in pasture.

It didn’t turn out quite as well as I had hoped.  When I had to shift to using the pill pusher instead of peanuts, the pusher came apart, and I “pushed” part of it down Ava’s throat with the copper capsule.  I had to call the vet, and he did say that since it was smooth, it was probably a non-issue.

I luckily had a pill pusher I could use to finish giving it to the rest of the goats.  But I’m at a loss.

I did find a replacement baller that should not be a problem.
