Pete was found last night (23/11/19) on the side of the road in the Tasmania countryside, hunched over and helpless. He was in an area where there were no other goats so had most likely been dumped. When the kind lady who saw him stopped and took a closer look she discovered he had a broken rear right leg, most likely the reason for him being dumped.
Pete was wearing a collar that was also extremely tight.
Pete came to us and we got him straight to the after hours vet where x-rays revealed the leg was broken and he underwent surgery to re-set the leg and have it cast and bandaged.
The vet bill was costly as it was all performed after 8pm on a Saturday night.
Pete needed some extra attention for the next few weeks with pain relief, bandage management and controlled exercise. He slowly got better and developed a spring in his step.
Pete has now blossomed into a beautiful healthy boy now. He has a best friend called Adam and loves living in his goat herd.
