UK goat numbers are rising and the general practitioner is increasingly likely to be presented with a goat case in practice. This session aims to build the confidence of the general practitioner in dealing with our caprine patients, discussing common health issues and health planning tasks. This talk is aimed at all levels of goat experience, and from all walks of clinical practice – you are just a likely to encounter a pet pygmy goat in small animal practice as you are in farm animal work so it pays to be prepared.
