    I am diligent about dipping cords and trimming if too long and Binkeys last born triplet was as fine as his sister and brother......I went to do a final check before I headed to bed at 11...all seemed great except that there was alot of blood in the stall, Binkey literally had this boys cord chewed so short that me and hubby had a hard time tying it off, he lost so much blood all of his membranes were white....I cuddled him and got some nutridrench in him but the damage was done...he crossed the Rainbow Bridge while in my arms and not even 12 hours old.

    He was the only one of the 3 that looked like his mama...such a handsome little guy.
    I am so sorry little man...I did what I could :(

    I'm am sorry for your loss liz. :cry: Those umbilical cords can be a lot of trouble some times. I've had several bleed like crazy this year and almost lost one because of it. Also had one last night we had to hold down while I tried to stop the bleeding. Mama was just trying her best, and must have liked him a lot, and gave him a little too much attention. :( :hug:

    I'm so sorry Liz... I had a Pug that was so "diligent" that way... (aka Crazed) she actually put her foot on the puppy and pulled the cord with her teeth.. the pup ended up with a hernia...
    Again, sorry the little guy didn't make it.... I had a stillborn doe 2 weeks ago too... I guess these things just happen
