The BVA Animal Welfare Foundation (BVA AWF) has published a newleaflet on goat keeping – the latest in a series of information leafletsdesigned to assist pet owners.
An Introduction to Goat Keeping aims to provide those new to goat keeping with basic guidance to ensure that any goats for which they are responsible remain healthy and happy.
BVA AWF chairman and vet, Carl Padgett, said: “Goats are curious animals that often enjoy human company and can make friendly and rewarding pets. The leaflet provides useful advice on the type of facilities you will need, where to find a pet goat and which breed to choose as well as important information on common health problems and details of current legislation relating to goat keeping.”
An Introduction to Goat Keeping is now available for download from the BVA AWF website.
Veterinary practices can obtain batches of leaflets for the waiting room by ordering online, while members of the public can request individual copies by contacting the BVA AWF directly at email@example.com .
