Ruminal Tympany, Pasture Bloat
Bloat is a common gastrointestinal condition in ruminants that is characterized by the accumulation of gas in the rumen and reticulum. Bloat can occur as a frothy or free gas form. Frothy bloat occurs due to rapid consumption of high protein, highly digestible feed, resulting in excess amounts of stable foam in the rumen. Free bloat occurs as a result of an obstruction or functional problem that prevents normal release of rumen gas. Free gas form is more common then frothy form in goats.
