prolapse? : LUSENET : Dairygoats : One Thread

Hi, it's me, obsessing about my one an only pregnant doe again. Every morning lately when Cookie first gets up there is a soft,swollen bulge just below the vagina.It does go away during the day but is back again the next morning. Is this a prolapse or simply pressure on the area from the kids?

How close is she? I have never experienced prolapse, and hopr to God I never do. Hopefully one of the more knowledgable folks will have an answer for you. I would just watch it closely, like you have been, and if it stayed out then I would worry. Good luck!

No matter if it is a prolapse or not, as long as it goes away when she stands up don't do anything about it. At nearly 12 my oldest doe right now is so swollen in her vulva it looks like she has two English Muffins on both sides. It is downright embarassing to look at! She doe this every year now. I have started rubbing it with preperation H, to shrink the swelling, it is NOT working :) It will go away when she kids, but for now I just don't look at it :) vicki

Hi, she's due at the end of the month. Don't really think it's a prolapse but don't have much experiance so thought I'd ask. Seems to have something to do with lying down because when she.s up and moving it goes away.
