Caring for farm animals like goats is time-intensive, hard work. Animals like goats need medical care just as much as house pets and our vets at Stewart Animal Clinic are happy to care for your goats!
A routine veterinary exam for your goat will evaluate their growth and the wellness of all body systems, looking for any changes or potential problems. The vet will also perform an external exam of your animal’s eyes, ears, hooves, and teeth, in addition to weighing your animal. The vet will also assess your animal’s heart for heart rate, rhythm, heart murmurs, and any other abnormalities and listen to the gut for digestive health.
In addition to regular checkups, vaccinations and parasite control are important components of preventative medicine. Vaccines keep goats from contracting many preventable diseases. The combination of vaccines and parasite control will keep disease and infection at bay.
Regular wellness exams and up-to-date vaccinations help ensure that your goats will be healthy and happy as long as possible.
