I have a 1 year old doe. Two days ago completely normal. The day before yesterday I noticed that it seemed like her tongue wasn't working right. Yesterday she seems to be blind and staggering when walking. She has an appetite. No salivation or frothing at the mouth. But she does scratch at her nose and sneeze a lot. She is bright and alert. Has anyone seen this before and can help me treat her?

Alpha123, hard to say what your doe has. I've never had nasal bots but it can cause sneezing and rubbing the nose. Not sure how quickly it progresses. Ivermectin treats it. EHD can cause neurological symptoms without showing the typical frothing. I've had some stagger like they were drunk, head listed to one side. They'd fall down and stumble. It was not like listeriosis. Polioencephalomalacia is another possiblily. It's a brain disease and can cause the staggering and blindness symptoms. Thiamine is the only treatment for it. Wish I could help more.

I would definitely try some Thiamine treatments. Try a search of Thiamine on this site, there should be several posts on it. It's cheap and it can't hurt anything to try it but it will probably take several treatments if you can get your hands on her... Good Luck...
