    At this point the fee for a necropsy is going to be your absolute nest thing to have done. Yes they are pricey but look at everything lost so far already. Iirc it was a long drive to your state lab. But if you do not make that drive at some point soon how ma y more animals are going to die on you for not making that drive.

    You can glove up and get a fecal sample. Obviously not the most ideal thing but definitely warranted in this case!!!

    I’m attempting to keep her temp up So far so good she’s at 95.3 right now and was well within lethal zones of temp when I brought her in the house

    What are you doing thus far to warm her up? Rub cayenne on the gums and tongue. It increases circulation and keeps organs working. Have you given large quantities of garlic yet?

    Do any of your neighbors have animals dying? Or have strange illnesses?

    Didn't you just bring in two new animals? Is any of this related? How many goats do you have on how many acres?

    Please excuse me if I'm wrong, but I thought you've had quite a few losses in the past 12+ months. Is this a longer term issue?

    I would stop breeding and stop buying until everyone is healthy.

    I am so sorry for your loss. You fought so hard for her. Do a necropsy urgently. You need to know what is going on.

    I'm sorry you lost her. Necropsy is critical now. I wouldn't have any animals coming in or going out until you get the results.

    Actually some farmers close to us and friends of ours are losing their goats to the exact same thing, this year they say the goats aren’t reacting to cydectin and they have to use ivermectin, we had another goat farmer come over the other day and he said when the goats go down like that it’s best to bring them in and get their temp up, and it worked for a bit with her but we got to her too late
