Awe..glad she kidded. Sorry you lost two and that moms not doing great. I would keep with the same treatment and try to get her up..but at least move her often. Switch sides. Milk her to feed babies.

I want to add that 17 years old is a testament to the care she was given. You have done well. What ever happened..she had a wonderful life.

Wow... Five. My goodness. No wonder she laid down. I really hope she can perk up. Keep a whole buffet in front of her of various foods and drinks and try moving her legs several times a day. Did her udder fill up, are you having to milk her?

Congrats on your babies, so sorry about the loss. What a strong mama. Hoping all is well with her and she recovers well. I agree to keep giving her nutritious options to regain her strength!
