DISEASES & TREATMENTS

Here you will be able to find information to help you raise healthy, happy goats.

We offer information that comes from articles by Veterinarians and from many of the   different universities,  other items come from medical text books, such as; the Merck Veterinary Manual (book version and online version). Goat Medicine by Mary C. Smith and David Sherman is also used as reference. Sheep & Goat Medicine by David Pugh is another Medical Book used to create this page. We have also include information from  some very experienced breeders. We believe there is always more than one way to do things so we have tried to offer at least 2-3 different articles on an individual subject.

We are not vets and don’t always endorse everything that every breeder does.

AFGO does not except any responsibility for the choices you make in raising or treating your herd.

AFGO tries to ensure the information is correct ,but, we can’t guarantee it will work for you.

Many things on this page are animated. Check them out! We have videos too!
