Urinary Caculi

Urinary calculi are "stones" that form in the urinary tract of the male goats under certain conditions. These can eventually block the urine flow causing extreme pain and death. Surgery and "re-plumbing" can be done when total blockage has occurred but this should be weighed against cost and quality of life of the animal. I have several older wethers and bucks that I have had since birth and have not experienced this condition yet. However, I have taken steps that I believe are helping to avoid it.
