    I noticed on my almost 2 month old doe this morning that twice when she urinated at the end there would be like a little blood clot. Otherwise her urine looks normal, she is acting like a kid. Any ideas?

    That is odd, is she housed with any little baby bucks?
    I only ask because if she is it may be time to separate them,as you know the little boys are old enough to breed at 8 weeks.


    Also, she could have the beginning of an infection,get a temp and keep watch, if it continues start her on an antibiotic.

    she is sleeping with her mom and brother right now. I thought maybe he was beginning to explore his man hood, but i have not ever seen him interested in anyone so have not separated him yet. Will try that as well as get a temp on her.

    It could have been a small heat - I wouldnt worry to much about it.

    If her brother is being manly then it could be the culprit, otherwise I wouldnt worry about it.

    Sometimes a good wack by another doe will cause capillaries to break which does produce blood.
