If you are planning on raising and taking care of goats, you can’t just take care of
one. Goats are considered to be „herd„ animals. This means that you will need to
have at least another goat. Goats do not thrive well if they don’t have the
company of other goats.
You will also need a pasture so that they can have room to roam around. Goats
need to have plenty of space. In order for them to live comfortably, they will need
to reside in a rural area, such as a farm.
Goats are normally not allowed to live within city limits. Usually the local
governments frown upon allowing them to dwell in urban areas. Since they are
considered to be agricultural, they will need to stay away.
You have to be committed to raising and taking care of the goats. They are like
children and they need attention. You will also need to have a back-up in the
event you have to temporarily go away. If you can’t find anyone, then you may
not be able to raise and take care of the goats.
Goats will need to be treated by a veterinarian. They are prone to getting different
diseases and illnesses. The goats will have to get vaccinations and preventative
treatment to keep worms and parasites away.
If you need to find a veterinarian for your goats, you can check with the Caprine
Veterinary Resources guide. This online guide will provide you with a listing of
veterinarians in different states.
