Mission of goatvetoz

To improve goat owners' skills and knowledge and introduce husbandry systems to leave a legacy of healthier goats & stronger goat industries.

Do you wish you could access a vet who was extremely knowledgeable about goats and genuinely cared about them?  Every day I learn more about goats, searching the web and my extensive reference collection to write or blog about goats. I am always learning more, despite my formal qualifications already completed on goats (e.g. PhD).  I am also one of only a handful of vets who have done their college (Australian & NZ College of Veterinary Scientists) membership in goats.  I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and hope to inspire you to become a better goat keeper and prevent your goats from getting sick.

Smart Owners, Healthy Goats

Goat disease control plans, worm control advice, public speaking about goats, advice to prevent disease, biosecurity plans to keep out chronic diseases of goats, elective surgery for goats e.g. castrations, dehorning, disbudding, scur removal.

Do you wish you had as your veterinarian, someone who:

  • only works with goats
  • has worked hands-on in commercial goat farms
  • has the best goat reference library in Australia
  • has worked with all goat types/breeds
  • loves to explain & educate goat owners

If so, this business and website is for you

Dr Sandra Baxendell, goatvetoz, will talk to any group about C.A.E. for free (just pick her up or reimburse her travel costs). Details of other courses e.g. worm control,  are described in the fee document.

Veterinary Advice about Goats

In order to help others or record clinical improvement, I may take photographs of goats and goat facilities when visiting your property.  Please let me know if you do not want these photos taken.
