Start her on probiotics and nutridrench. Have you considered milk fever? Did you try to offer grain? Warm molasses water?

I would also give her some Baking soda in addition to mjs suggestions. lots of probiotics.

milk fever is a good thought. Give her Calcium Gluconate sub-q according to the directions on the bottle. If it is milk fever she should respond pretty quickly. Repeat treatment two more times.

B-complex injections never hurt.

Take a temp on her?

Does she stink like super sweet? Has the vet been there yet or gathering supplies and heading that way?

I would also give her C D Antitoxin and Thiamine along with the MiraLax...this will support her system until she is back up and going...DOseher with Nutra drench until your vet gets there..it has Propolyne Glycol in is...best wishes

Treat.for milk.fever (CMPK) and ketosis (propylene glycol). Pain rlief (banamine), supportive therapy (B complex, vitamin c, probiotics).

Also.consider the possibility of a retained kid, this always comes to.mind when they go downhill this soon after kidding.

One more thought also check her udder to rule out.mastitis.

Did she pass the placenta?

I would think with a low temp it would not be retained placenta or a kid, because I am pretty sure she would be running a really high temp.
Could be a worm load. ( wouldn't rule that out)
could be low calcium/milk fever
is she showing any signs of anemia?

Placenta passed yesterday, Vet checked and I checked no second kid. She doesn't look anemic to me or the vet, I just did a fecal on her about a month ago it was negative. I've started PG and I got the calcium glucanate but I don't have sterile water to dilute it yet. vet didn't think milk fever do to the fact she is up and moving around started her on 5 day course of penicillin. she is readily drinking the molasses and water. She seems a bit constipated or she doesn't want to poop cause she's sore. she is much more comfortable now and a bit brighter but still notr eating I've picked honey suckle and gum trees for her she thinks about it but nothing yet. Thanks for all the input.

Sounds like she is super wore out...I would keep up with the PG just in case...B complex really help boost thier appitite and energy..Probiotics for after Pen G treatment is done to restore her flora..Prep. H will help with rear swelling...keep a close watch on her to poop...hopefully she wont make you wait long lol...if she does not poop and enema might be needed..but Im sure once that molasses water kicks in she will poop..I might add a bit of Baking soda in her water as well...;)
