When this occurs, swelling, and possibly pain, will result In other words, dehydration causes a buildup of fluid in the tissues and causes blood vessels to enlarge, which gives the face a puffy look Dehydration - Sodium High sodium intake is the number one culprit for fluid retention - the typical american diet is plagued with excessive sodium levels The job of the kidneys is to filte

Bloat In Cattle

Bloat In Cattle Definition and Etiology Bloat is the abnormal accumulation of gas in the ruminal forestomachs. Three categories of bloat are (1) frothy bloat caused by diets that lead to the formation of a stable froth or foam in the rumen, (2) free gas bloat caused by diets that lead to excessive gas production and concomitant low intraruminal pH, and (3) free gas bloat caused by failure to eructate from extraruminal causes of gas accumulation such as esophageal obstruction. When bloating occurs, these gases cannot escape, and they continue to build up and cause severe distention of the abdomen, compression of the heart and lungs, and eventually death. Clinical Signs and Differential Diagnosis When cattle experience a case of bloat, the degree of forestomach enlargement and distension can vary. The clinical signs associated with bloat vary from an even filling of the left paralumbar fossa to an extreme abdominal enlargement. Other clinical signs associated with bloat are colic with kicking at the abdomen, treading, frequent lying down and rising, and vocalization. Some animals may exhibit a stretched stance with the rear feet placed far back. As the forestomachs enlarge and the di Continue reading >>

    Dear Usman,
    Have you considered that in nature goats were always self fed only on green leaves.So it would seem you can try increasing the green leaf fodder to start with. Next you may like to recall that good drinking water for goats used to be from clean streams. Now such good clean drinking water is rare even for humans. Good clean mineral rich sweet drinking water slightly alkaline . Its pH can go up to 8.5..
    In my humble opinion try improving these instead of treating with medicines.

  2. Dr.Tadimeti Hanumanta

    I fully agree with Dr.Subodh, however the question by Dr.Usman is the treatment of already affected goats.
    This is rampant even in the indian conditions, when goats are reared in urban places.
    The treatment is to feed Sodium Bicarbonate, around 25 gm saturated in 1/2 litre of water.
    Hope this works for you Dr.Usman

  3. Subodh Kumar

    Sodium bicarbonate - a good suggestion. But take care of water. Make it alkaline if possible.

Grocery Store Baking Soda. A Source Of Sodium Bicarbonate In The Management Of Chronic Metabolic Acidosis.

Abstract Oral sodium bicarbonate is used to treat metabolic acidosis in patients with renal tubular acidosis. Since infants and young children are unable to swallow tablets, those affected must ingest sodium bicarbonate in a powder or liquid form. Pharmacy-weighed sodium bicarbonate is expensive and inconvenient to obtain; some pharmacists are reluctant to provide it. We determined that the sodium bicarbonate contained in 8-oz boxes of Arm and Hammer Baking Soda was sufficiently constant in weight that, dissolved in water to a given volume, it yielded a quantitatively acceptable therapeutic solution of sodium bicarbonate at a cost of approximately 3 percent of that of pharmacy-weighed sodium bicarbonate. Grocery store baking soda can be a safe, economical, and convenient source of sodium bicarbonate for the treatment of chronic metabolic acidosis in infants and young children. Continue reading >>

    HELP - Emergency! Grain overload!

    I bought a 70 lb. bag of barley to supplement my new moms and moms to be. I had fed out maybe 10 lb. of that bag so far. This morning, my friend's kid let the sheep out of lock up for me. There is a side gate that goes to the feed storage barn, and he went into the barn to get hay out for them. He did not close the gate latch properly. This evening, when I arrived to lock everyone in, I found the gate wide open, and my entire herd except for one mom and her lamb were in the feed room. They had made a mess of the hay, and had binged on the barley such that there was maybe 15-20 lb left, so around 40 lb. This was shared among 12 adults (Barbs, a Kat ram, and some Kat/Barb crosses. So, each potentially ate 3.75 lb. Of course, I can't know who might have eaten more of it or less. It was raining when I arrived, and the one ewe with her lamb that was in the pasture had probably had her fill, and I worry that she was feeling punky which is why she was away from the rest.
    All I could think to do for the moment was drench everyone with bloat drench (for foamy bloat). I had this happen once before where the sheep ended up scouring but were otherwise fine, but I did lose one old ewe two days later and I now think this may have been from the bacteria toxin from over-eating. These sheep have had their CD/T; the new moms were revaccinated just a couple of weeks before they delivered.
    What more can I do? I have vitamin B injectable which I've heard can help mitigate the consumption of the body's B vitamins when the bacteria over-grows. I've also heard of giving penicillin injectible by mouth to kill the bacteria that produces the toxin that is so deadly. Should I go ahead and give these things tomorrow morning whether or not there are signs of illness. Everything I read says when they are really sick from this it is too late. But what can I do to mitigate their overeating before they get sick? I've also been told that milk of magnesia would be useful.
    Help!

    I'd just keep a close eye on them and only treat any that show signs of bloating.
    Throwing a lot of medications at them can cause problems too.
    If you HAVE to treat any, I'd give them vegetable oil and baking soda for bloat and acidosis.
    NO food other than hay until you see how their stools look

  3. StockDogLovr

    Thanks, Bearfootfarm - I just panicked because I knew they'd be going overnight without observation since I don't live where they are.
    I did have a similar thing happen once before, where the flock got into grain and alfalfa pellets, and everyone scoured but they were okay otherwise....except for one old ewe who died two days later. I didn't recognize that she was having any problems, and maybe she died coincidentally, but I worry that she died from the clostridium bacteria toxins...
    I will check everyone tomorrow AM. My friend's goats help themselves to baking soda free-fed, but will sheep do the same if offered baking soda? I've never provided it before.

Goats can get bloat for many various reasons. However, over eating grain is usually the reason our goats get it. We generally use Apple cider vinegar/ water. However , this time around, we also tried a home remedy that I thought was very interesting. Pop!! Join me as I share how pop helped our goat heal from bloat. CORRECTION! I said in the video I used applecider vinegar mixed with baking soda. I meant to say applecider vinegar and water. Sorry for any confusion. BTW...it was only the pop that helped her start burping:)

Battling Bloat

Baking soda isn’t a magical cure-all for goats. Anyone with a hobby goat will invariably be told to feed it baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) at some point. It’s promoted as a cure for everything from bloat to urinary stones. Most of the time, this advice is misplaced. Let’s discuss what the function of baking soda is and what it does and doesn’t do. Sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) is a biochemical that buffers the rumen. What this simply means is that it keeps the rumen pH stable. This is important because the microbes that digest hay thrive in a pH of 6.0-6.8 while grain-digesting microbes thrive at a pH of 5.5-6.0 so we need to keep rumen pH within a narrow window for rumen health. Also, pH directly affects the ability to absorb certain nutrients. So, yes, sodium bicarbonate is very beneficial. But what most people don’t realize is that the ruminant animal produces its own sodium bicarbonate in the saliva without being fed baking soda. During the act of cud chewing, copious amounts of bicarbonate are transferred into the rumen. Goats fed long-stem forages (grazing pastures or receiving hay) will produce more saliva (and thus bicarbonate) than goats fed grains or finely grou Continue reading >>

  • What Is Acidosis In Cattle?

    Cattle and other ruminants are able to digest grasses and other fibrous material because of the billions of bacteria, fungi and protozoa in the rumen. Each of these microbes has a preferred food source. For example, some prefer fibrous materials, whereas others prefer starch. Regardless of their preferred feed source, all bacteria beak down simple sugars to volatile fatty acids such as acetate, propionate, and butyrate. These volatile fatty acids ...
