I have a little Lamancha billy that is in the region of 10 months old,
He is just a pet and I need to capture him castrated, I am going to take him to a vet to have it done
After everything, How much will it total out to be aprox.?
I think you want to call a large animal vet, not a small animal vet. They normally will come out and handle it at your property, so the animal doesn't need to be moved. My guess would be a couple hundred bucks.
just do it yourself it is not hard.you can borrow a banding tool and band him for approximately 1 buck.pardon the pun. You just put this thick strip on the tool stretch it and put the band high up on the testicle bag.approximately 2=3 weeks and they fall off. Easy

Answers: You're right, you need to castrate him as soon as possible! Most goat breeders castrate their own but I follow wanting the vet to do it. A lot depends on where you live. The closer you are to a big city the more expensive. Some will depend on how the vet chooses to do the deed. It could run anywhere from $15 to $75 though I'd expect it to be somewhere in the $35 to $45 stock. Generally there will be an office charge and then any a time charge or a procedure charge plus a charge for any supplies.
depends on where on earth you live. i live in a very country area where on earth the cows outnumber the people 10 to 1 and our mayour gets into fistfights with the council member. our vet comes out to our place and usually charges 35 for the younger and 50 for the older. best advice call for your vet and ask.
If he's newly a pet then why get him castrated, the only viable explanation for the castration is if he isn't a pure bred, you keep other goats and are trying to breed from them, and the usual way afterwards is castrate, let him grow and then kill him for meat.
