Polioencephalomalacia is a neurologic disorder of ruminants caused by disturbed thiamine status. I have had trouble with this malnutrition disorder in the past and right now have two goats down with it. The doe, Vivian, has been paralyzed since Saturday and her baby Saul has been down with it since yesterday. It is so hard to see and hard to realize that is is from such a seemingly simple thing as an imbalance of nutrients.
Angora goats rule!
Thank you, Lord, for my job, my home, and goats!
