    Whew. all of my goats are negitive! :) i'm so relieved, i was so worried that they would be positive i cant really believe it.

    Although i did have one shot of bad news- my new FB star scored 81, wich is positive. ugg, my only FB boer doe. that means her kid could have it too. but i'm retesting in 8 months, maybe it was false of something.

    I would retest with a different lab to make sure. Pulling the babies is the only way to halt the disease but even then it sometimes doesn't insure a clean baby.

    If you don't want to pull the kids...... I really can't blame you...the only alternative is... to sell her and her daughter and get a replacements.... I really hate to say that... :hug: ...but that is the safest way.. I see to protect the rest of your clean herd.... :hug:

    if the baby has already started to nurse off mom then pulling her kid now wont be of any use. The CAE virus would have already been passed on through the colostrum

    I would retest through WADDL just to make sure on that CAE. No offense to Bio Tracking as I LOVE :love: their pregnancy testing, but I don't do any of my viral testing through them at all.

    Me and WADDL have had some issues involving a inaccurate test result. So I wouldn't say WADDL is the best place to test with. But thats just me. :wink: I also understand that any lab will make a mistake every once and a while.
