When I dosed the girls, Arabella took it with almost no problems. Of course she tried to not take it, but when I got it into her mouth, she swallowed like a good girl. Star, on the other hand was a hoot! Whenever I got the stuff in her mouth, she would make the most interesting faces by turning her bottom jaw side ways and showing me her tongue. It seemed like she was holding the medication in her mouth and not swallow! And then she would let out this over-dramatic, exasperated exhale. Being a newbie to dosing goats, I thought she was gonna roll over and die on me! I was so stressed. When I was done, I came in and emailed Melissa again, asking if it was normal for Star to be making all those "faces". She emailed back and "lol"ed me, saying it was perfectly normal. Now that I know, I am ready for Star's face-making today! LOL
I am super-thankful that Melissa was there to help; I never would have figured out that I needed the Sulmet 12.5%. I would have ended up taking them to the vet and spending a couple hundred dollars. She has been so kind to me and I am so grateful!
