Well, not for all goats, just Chummix. According to Dr. Cannedy Chummix is sick, with “old goat disease”. Chummix is watched closely, and has been for some time now. About six months or so ago Chummix lost a lot of weight. He was checked for all the typical diseases, and Dr. Cannedy has seen him three or four times since then. Chummix still eats and does his usual activities… he’s just old. Chummix is currently a shadow of what he used to be, and looks like an old goat.
Last week Chummix was sitting more, not being as rambunctious as usual, and wasn’t eating as he typically does. I think Sarah said he was being quite “cuddly”. Dr. Cannedy came by and still says Chimmix has “old goat disease”, but gave him some vitamins and recommended the following treatment: Gatorade. 1 part Gatorade to 4 parts water. It’s been hot, super hot as we all know. We need to keep Chummix hydrated and with balanced electrolytes too!
