Additional Kritter Services
Are you a busy goat-owner who simply can't fit everything in your day? Or are you new to goats, and not sure how to do what needs to be done? We can help!
The following services are available to any goat owner, no matter how big or small your operation is. We will come to you, or for some services, you can bring your goats to us. E-mail us at [email protected] or call/text 616-215-6083 to make your appointment today!
If there's a service you're looking for not listed below, feel free to contact us to discuss other possibilities.
Blood collection can be necessary for a variety of things, including disease testing and pregnancy testing. We can collect the blood (or teach you how!), and will give you detailed instructions as to how to send it to the proper lab yourself. $5/goat, $3/goat for 10 or more at the same stop
We offer 2 clipping options. Basic clipping will be a complete body clip, perfect for photography or keeping your goats cool during the summer heat. Show Clipping will leave your goat ready to walk into the show ring. Basic Clipping: $25/Miniature Breed, $35/Standard Breed. Show Clipping: $35/Miniature Breed, $45 Standard Breed
Disbudding your young kids will prevent undesirable horn growth. Kids should be disbudded as soon as horn buds can be felt, which can be as young as 24 hrs for buck kids and 3-5 days for does. $5/goat
Keep your goats' hooves in shape! Ideally, hooves should be trimmed every 6-8 weeks. $8/goat, $5/goat for 10 or more at the same stop
Tattooing is required to register your goats. You can also tattoo scrapie numbers rather than using the tags. $5/goat
Experienced with goats (including kiddings and milking), dogs, cats, alpacas, horses, poultry, and more, we can keep your animals happy and healthy on your farm while you're away. Farm-sitting is available on a limited basis, please contact me for more information.
For farm calls, first 10 miles are free. Additional mileage is $0.50/mile, to be calculated from my home address in Coral MI 49322. Some services can be done on our farm, eliminating mileage fees.
Fees are due at time of services rendered, unless other arrangements have been made in advance. Acceptable payment methods are cash, check, or PayPal.
Please note: I am not a veterinarian. I am simply a goat owner willing to help other local goat owners. I reserve the right to refuse any service at any time.
