Looking for advice

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Dairygoats : One Thread

I have had goats for quite some time and never have I had a goat that has given me so much worry and stress. The doe is past due only by 3 days and has been border-line preg. toxemia for 3 weeks!! I make her get up to walk and eat, I have her on a special diet, I pamper her, I curse her and I just plain worry about her. Vet says to just let nature take it's course and keep up the pampering.... If I lose this doe then I told my vet friend that she will pay for her. :) (We are good friends) Talked to another vet and they said pretty much the same.... Oh well, just needed to vent some of my frustration.

It really sounds like you're doing all that you can. Please let us know when she finally kids for you!

Still no babies. Got up quite a few times last night to make her move around so she doesn't just lay in the same spot in her urine and poop. She doesn't even bother to get up to do that!
