Magic & Revive Recipes
These two recipes have saved untold goat lives and no one should go into kidding season without these recipes handy and the ingredients on hand. Ketosis and hypocalcemia are serious concerns especially with does carrying multiple fetuses and/or large kids.
Propylene Glycol while fine for treating ketosis in cattle just does not have the same positive effects with goats and Connie Ross’s Revive and Magic are more suited for a goats system and have been responsible for the saving of many goats lives whether they have been used for the treatment of hypocalcemia, stress and/or many other illnesses when a goat is going downhill fast and needs immediate attention.
1 500 ml bottle 50% Dextrose
1 500 ml bottle of Amino Acid Solution (50cc if it is the concentrate)
200 cc Calcium Gluconate (for pregnancy toxemia)
20 cc B Complex
5 cc B12 (3000 mcg)
5 cc Thiamine (500 mg/ml)
1 gram Ascorbic Acid
Mix in a half gallon canning jar and keep in a cool dark place.
Give 100 cc’s of Revive mixed with an equal amount of water several times a day until the doe is eating again.
Revive can be used for any sick goat if the Calcium Gluconate is left out.
Connie does not use CMPK until after the doe has kidded and states that the Calcium Gluconate works better before kidding.
1 pint of molasses
1 pint of Karo Syrup
1 cup corn oil
Mix and keep in the house as it will not pour if cold.
Give 6-10 ounces as the last drench at bedtime in pregnancy toxemia to keep energy up and hold the doe for the night. Use 8-10 oz for a large doe.
Magic is also good for sick animals who have gone off their feed.
