Mr Wilbur on his feet and hanging out with his sisters after his castration. Itโ€™s nice for these critters when their owners are on board for making it as comfortable a process as we can. . Wilber had a quick exam (Iโ€™ve already met him and examined him this spring). I listened to his heart and lungs to be sure I was confident that he would be ok for my preferred goat sedative, and I gave him an oral dose of a non steroidal anti inflammatory. Then he was sedated and his testicles blocked with lidocaine. I used a burdizzo clamping instrument to crush the spermatic cords one at a time, and reversed his sedation. He was back on his feet in about six minutes. Heโ€™ll likely be a little quiet for the afternoon, but in my experience, this method has these guys back to their normal bouncy selves very quickly! . Check out Episode 10 of my podcast for my rundown of castration methods and what I like to do with them. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ . #vetmed #vetlife #goatmed #instagoat #ambulatoryvet #goatvet
