That is an amzing journey, isn't it! :happygoat:Me too! I'm a first time goat mama and goat midwife, so seeing all these little changes and documenting everything my girls are experiencing has been so exciting. The whole learning process has been pretty awesome, and seeing them go from little 5 month old babies to almost mom's has been so cool.
It really is! As crazy as they have made me over the last few months makes me appreciate it a little more. These will be the first mammal babies born on our little homestead, so I feel like this journey with these gals will forever hold a special place.That is an amzing journey, isn't it! :happygoat:
It does help! Thank you!! I was able to test them both again at different times on different days, and the results were negative, so I feel like I can breathe a little lol.Ketone strips need to be read immediately because the longer the time after the urine contacts it causes more color change. It's harmless.
If you were to use them on yourself every time you pee'd you'd see that you would be between trace and negative at different times during the day. For example, if you had recently had a big lunch you'd probably come up trace but after cleaning out the barn you'd probably be negative. It's when you get into the higher values you have problems. It works the same way with goats. I hope that helped ease your mind a bit.
