    Where do you send it kelebek?

    I am 95% sure she isn't preggy, but I figured if I let the vet test then I could get the lute from them.

    I go through http://www.biotracking.com they are AWESOME! They run tests on Mon and Wed, with results given on Wed and Fri.

    It is $7.50 for the test and about $5.00 for shipping.

    You can also get the lute from http://www.vetserv-usa.com without an RX!!! it is about $60.00 though - so I would ask the vet how much he is going to charge for a single dose - might be in your interest to just buy the whole dang bottle and save yourself!

    PS thanks for the letters - I received them on Friday!!! I OWE you!

    Well the BoSe was $40 for a 100ml bottle. Blah!

    I told the lady there that the preg test was much cheaper if I sent it out myself. I also asked if I could give them a copy of the results(if she is neg.) and we could go from there. She said that was fine.

    DOnt give up on her!! Ok seriously, I had two does doing the same thing, I just about sold the two. There was absolutly no signs on heat, I would take the buck to her everyday and tease her and nothing. SO I got pissed off and decided to just shove her in the buck pen ( yes with all 5 of my bucks) I figured she would get pregnant one way or another. Well come to find out that doe LOVED to be chaced around and snorted at lol. After 5 minutes of her kicking up her heels at the boys she finally stood for them and had a triplets 5 months later. Everytime I want to get these two does bred I have to leave them in there for a month straight to make sure she got tagged because her heats were so silent that ludalycing her dident help. It sounds to me just like the problem I had! dont give up on her!

    Well I have been leaving her in with the buck in a stall and watching, but she just runs around screaming bloody murder and he looks at her like she is crazy. :shrug:

    I am sure to replace her I would need to get vet proof of her being infertile and in the end it's just not worth it to me. I will most likely end up selling her to a pet home with a wether.

    Ashley, I'm so sorry!


    Was the lute given at 1 1/2 cc? It is odd that she didn't come into heat...usually works within 48 hours..though with some it can take up to 96 hours for a heat.

    Yep, 1 1/2 cc. Should I try 2cc?

    I watched her very carefully and she never came into heat. Put her and the buck together everyday. :scratch:

    Okay, this is going to be strange but I guess it's worth a try. Have you tried a different buck?? Just pulling at straws here. I just looked back at my old post and I'm sorry for not looking up those homeopatchics for you. I will go grab the book now. I want to say Sepia was one of the homeopathics but not sure, so will go and check. I guess it's worth a try.

    I've tried every buck I have at the barn right now. I even brought in a buck from my friends and she doesn't want him either.

    Well I am now putting her in with the buck during the day, ALL day, and then putting her in with the other juniors at night. I am also giving her red raspberry leaves. I'm up for trying anything right now.

    I was actually debating throwing her in with all the bucks and leaving her for a month or so, but i decided it wasn't such a good idea. Half the bucks are already on the injured list and fighting over a girl is not something they need right now.

    Is there a way to put her and a buck together for some time? I have a doe that just would not show signs of heat - but I think that we finally got her - saw some goo - but no flagging at all and when I would turn a boy in there with her - she would be the crud out of him.

    Yeah, she is staying with Fudge during the day, and all she did the whole day was scream like crazy. I didn't think the neighbors would appreciate the screaming at night. :hair:

    This is a young doe. I wouldn't panic yet. If you did see her having cycles it would seem very odd to me that she is having a problem that won't resolve itself next season. I've had ND does the same age that I saw in heat in fall/early winter and did not come back into heat after early Feb. This time of year heats can become either more silent or end altogether til late summer/early fall.
    If you can wait til next fall, I'm betting she'll be just fine.
