    Fingers crossed for black treacle and molasses I must admit red and gloopy consistency doesn't sound the most appealing. I'm pleased that Charlie is acting more normally now though.

    No, I agree, the red stuff looks disgusting. And 30ml is a lot! The vet said the molasses might make it palatable or at least thicker to hold it in his mouth better. I know mummy Pickle likes black treacle so fingers crossed......

    He doesn’t like black treacle mixed with red goop. And he ate some when I mixed goat mix in with it but not much. I think I’ll just have to syringe feed it!

    His appetite is really good, he’s not eating quite as much hay as I’d like, but he’s eating his chopped grass and goat mix fine. The vet wants me to continue with the meds until he’s eating completely normally and he will take it but he’s such a good boy and so obviously hates it that it’s hard for me to make him take it I really hoped he would like black treacle but they are a little fussy and thinking about it they don’t like molassed chopped grass so I should have known really so I cancelled the molasses order for tomorrow

    Hope Charlie starts eating and taking his meds better today. I love watching the goats on the Yorkshire Vet, they seem such lovely animals.

    Thankyou I found out that the ‘medicine’ is not much more than a sugar syrup so I decided that I didn’t want to force syringe feed him it neat, now he is eating, today he is back to eating normally and ripping hay from the hay rack I’ve bought garlic powder to mix in with the goat mix and sugar syrup mixture and I’m hopeful he will eat that as they all love wild garlic.

    I'm glad Charlie's back to normal eating I can't really imagine garlic with sugar syrup, but hopefully he'll enjoy it.

    Thankfully the garlic powder works. In fact he loves it he is back to his usual self now but I’m going to mix the syrup into his feed morning and night until it’s finished, now I know he will eat it with the garlic powder! It will help build him up again
