6 year old doe with triplets and a ripped cervix

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Dairygoats : One Thread

has anyone had any experience with a doe after kidding ripping her cervix? yesterday she had triplets tough kidding had to pull all three. and in the process must have tore her cervix, had vet out this morning and he gave her antibiotics and some pain meds. told me to give her electrolytes and finish giving antibiotics for 4 days and told me she probably only has a 30-40% chance. just wondering if anyone has been thru this and what their outcome was and if anyone has any other ideas to help me out!!!!!!

They live through it. But it can make scar tissue that causes trouble at the next kidding. I have a doe like that, I have had to pull the kids every time since her hardest kidding, because the scar tissue keeps her from opening sufficiently.
