I hope you get good help and advice from your vet, and/or the BoSe helps. Get better, Cole!
How is Cole this morning?
Unfortunately Cole declined rapidly yesterday evening. He could no longer even hold his head up, was unable to nurse even when we held him. The vet suspected heart defect. We said goodbye to him and gave him lots of cuddles. This is our first loss and it while it stings a whole lot I'm also grateful he is not suffering anymore. Thank you all for your advice, support and help.
So sorry to hear that. Hugs!!!
Why sorry you lost him. ((Hugs))
So sorry you lost little Cole. Every loss really hurts. Especially when you both fought so hard. But yes, he is in a better place now. And he has been a teacher to you as well. Patience, perseverance and stamina.
Sorry you lost him.
So sorry for your loss.
Thank you all. We are very sad and missing him already. I didn't think about it until just now, but do I need to milk out Cole's mama or just keep an eye on her udder? We haven't milked her, she was only feeding Cole, so I don't even know how much milk she has. Her udder does look full, but not really tight or anything.
I am not sure but she could get ill if the milk goes no where. Some one can correct me but maybe you should milk her out.
I'm sorry for your loss!
I am late to this thread, but I was so sad to hear that you lost him Sorry for your loss.
So sorry for your loss. It is always hard to lose one, no matter how long or how many goats you have.
Regarding her udder; if you plan to milk her, start now, twice a day. Milk out completely. If you are not going to milk her, then milk out just enough to relieve her hardness. Watch and make sure she doesn't get mastitis. When milking, wash and dry her udder (and your hands). Check her temp daily and her udder. If it starts to get hot or hard, you need to get her milked out promptly and start mastitis treatment. Good luck!
I am so sorry for your loss.
Thank you so much! I will not be milking her but I definitely don't want to see her get sick.
