Lame pregnant goat : LUSENET : Dairygoats : One Thread

Our 6 year old nubian doe is very pregnant (139 days) and huge. She has a lame back leg due to an injury and about 1 week ago developed a sore front leg and cannot stand. The vet came out last Friday and gave her a shot for pain and a slow acting Tetracyline shot. We feel so bad for her. She is eating and drinking well. She is just too heavy to hold herself up. She has not stood upright for almost two weeks. She can stand with her back legs, but can't and won't use her front leg. What should we do?
