I have a very small herd of eight goats. Friday we realized one of our does had given birth outside of the barn in the cold. Baby was cold, not too responsive. Was not interested in eating. Since then we found he was hypothermic - we have been able to get his temp back up and have given him LR, electrolytes, and even tube fed a couple times. Today we got some selenium and B complex paste. However he is NOT interested in a bottle, continues to breathe rapidly (60-70 times per minute) and sleeps most of the time. We get him up, rouse him around, he urinates and he has passed dark tarry stool a couple of times. Trying to get mom corralled in our garage, the heated barn still lead to his temp dropping to 97. Any other advice?!? No goat vets around here. Just not wanting the little fella to suffer if there’s no hope. New to kidding. Thank you.
