Bloated goat

Hi! i have a goat that is a twin who is give or take 10 years old and she is bloated. she looks like she has 3 basket balls in her stomach and it has been this way for about 2 years. i was wondering if anyone knows what might be causing this or what the problem was.

P.S. she is 1/4 Nubien and 3/4 Alpine

Two years? And nothing has come about to indicate what it is? Did you have her seen by the vet? wormed? I am just running down the list of the obvious things people will want to know in this situation.

First thought was bloat, air in her stomach but if it's been two years no clue. You could always try something like Bloat Ez to see if it helps. I would deworm her with a paste dewormer see if that helps.

Could be uterine or mammary tumors. You really should have a vet look at her.

I didn't think there was such a thing as an un-bloated goat.

Jokes aside, my first thought was worms or tumors. Sounds like it's time to give the vet a call.

we wormed her and her twin (who is not bloated) but it didn't do anything. and she still runs and plays and does evrything else a normal goat does
