Squinty-eyed kid

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Dairygoats : One Thread

One of the new doelings seems kind of squinty in one eye, like she doesn't open that eye all the way. I don't think any of the goats have pink-eye. So I'm wondering if this is a little birth abnormality that may or may not go away, or something I should be thinking about treating. Thoughts?

Sorry, seems I posted this question too soon. I just found out the answer. My friend who is a vet just stopped by and I asked her to look at it. It is an extra eyelid problem, one I knew the buck had had, but it still didn't occur to me this was the problem. Anyway, she is going to fix it for me with a stitch, on Wednesday.
