Another Round of Copper

5 Jul

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

Copper capsule hidden in a peanut

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.

    Oh dear! I’m surprised that the vet was so nonchalant about the pill pusher. Did he just think she would pass it?
    What is a baller?
