Hi and welcome to TGSHi! So we aren’t new to the goat game, but one of our mamas has had quintuplets. Everything was fine until today, when we noticed one of the kids weren’t doing so well. The mom kidded around 10 days ago or a little less. One of these baby goats is acting quite lethargic and it’s mouth is hanging open occasionally. It doesn’t seem like it can walk, and it is still able to move its ears and tail. Please help! Any advice would be appreciated! Thankyou!
Congratulations on your quints.
What is the babies temperature taken rectally? Normal is 101.5-103.5*F
Have you been weighing each baby daily to make sure they’re gaining weight? I’d be worried this little one isn’t getting enough to eat.
Hows it’s breathing, is it raspy or labored?
Did you dip babies cords in iodine?
Did you give baby a pea sized dollop of selenium vitamin e gel at birth?
