It sounds like your goat may be experiencing a urinary obstruction, which can be a serious condition that requires immediate veterinary attention. Some possible causes of a urinary obstruction in goats include bladder stones or a physical blockage of the urethra, which is the tube that carries urine out of the body. This can cause your goat to experience pain and difficulty urinating, as well as stippling of the urine. It's important to have a veterinarian examine your goat as soon as possible to determine the cause of the obstruction and provide appropriate treatment. In the meantime, you should provide your goat with plenty of water to help prevent dehydration.
