How did the iodine test go?
Keep painting the tail web daily until it stops absorbing. I would also add kelp to their diet for a healthy iodine source.Yes I painted it yesterday. This morning it is gone.
It's not easy getting a mom to accept a baby that is not theirs. You can tie 104 to a fence or put her on a milk stand to let the baby suckle.My husband bought a 4-day goat for the sad mom. This baby goat is half/bottled and half-nursed by her mom. I want my sad mom could accept her. It has 3 hrs passed the baby just suckled 104 one time. Can you guys give me some suggestions how 104 can accept the baby quickly? If I bottle her how many times feed her one day .
Thank you very for your detailed information.It's not easy getting a mom to accept a baby that is not theirs. You can tie 104 to a fence or put her on a milk stand to let the baby suckle.
As far as feeding the baby Use whole cows milk from the grocery store with a pinch of baking soda in the first bottle of the day.
To figure out how much to feed, weigh baby, take her weight and multiply it by 16 then divide that number by 10 then divide that number by 6 feedings. An example would be a 10 pound baby times 16 would equal 160 divide that by 6 feedings would be 2.6 ounces each feeding. So, every 4 hours she'd get about 2.6 ounces in her bottle.
Make sure that the milk temperature is 101*F and babies temp is at least 100* (normal for a goat is 101.5-103.5) they have to have it warmer than a human baby.
I hope this helped. Good luck trying to graft baby to 104.
You have pretty goats
It sounds like it. She'll need to see the vet for Excenel, or draxxin,a prescription antibiotics. You can give her infants Benadryl till you can get to the vet. Pneumonia is something that has to be treated with prescription medications especially in a 4day old baby.Now the baby goat seems sick . She has thick phlegm in her nose and throat. She has no fever. She is not active. About 4 hrs ago I fed her 2 ounces of milk from 104. She poops and pees normally. She has pneumonia?
