Emergency Goat Care Seminar Overview

This seminar is to give goat owners the tools and information they need to get through nearly any goat related emergency. This is for both the beginner and the experienced goat owner. Learn what is normal and what will require immediate attention. 

We are offering another in depth goat medical emergency/health care course. This is a class going over many of the emergencies that both new and experienced goat owners may see. The chances that you WILL see at least ONE of the things we will cover are pretty close to 100%.

We will cover each problem and what can cause it.   We will discuss how to identify issues by going over the symptoms.   We will then discuss treatment options (both conventional and organic).   

We will not be discussing the following (outside of how different methods of each can contribute to illness or treatment of certain issues):  Housing, fencing, pasture, browse, nutrition or goat breeds.
