I have two little goat kids with some health issues. Both are bucklings, same mama, same kidding. About 3 weeks old. They are both nursing, but aren't gaining weight like their brother.
The vet says they have fluid in their lungs and pretty bad heart murmurs. He says its only a matter of time.
I'm really torn. The goat kids seem comfortable enough, even though their energy is low. Their little tails wag, and I wonder if I ought not to just make them as comfy as possible, and keep an eye on them. Or if they really are horribly miserable, maybe it would be kinder to put them down. They aren't crying or anything, they sleep a lot, get up to nurse, walk around the yard a bit, seem to have normal bowel movements.
They can't talk to me, so it's so hard to know. What would you do?
