Ok
175 lbs nubian with temp of 103
Kidded yesterday with breech spin first kid. All kids (3) had to be pulled. Mom worn out. Started on pen and was given oxetosene(sp?) To help pass afterbirth as she was so weak.
Was also given power punch to help get her eatting and drinking. She world not drink unless forced. Was milked for 5.5 lbs colostrum. Eat 1 lbs grain.

Did not drink all night but was up and moving next morning and was milked for 3.6 lbs and had 1lbs grain.

Started force feeding gatoraid. Has only had 2qt all day. She acts like in pain and crys out when you touch belly.

Today has had pen shot and vit b was just given.

She will not eat or drink. Still having contractions.

ashley is right, if she is still contracting its not because of the oxytocin. I suspect she has another kid in there ...

I'm praying for your doe to pull through

Yep, I as going to say the same thing Keren said. Have you check to make sure there are no more babies?

I would give Molasses water for more energy and give the the mix of Karo Syrup and Coffee. She does not need the whiskey because she has a normal temp.

I hope she make it. The B should stimulate her appetite.

I am praying for her.... :pray: :hug:

Shelly Borg... had mentioned that she gave Oxy...
but it wasn't mentioned ....when ....after the oxy was given... that she was contracting.... she gave it... because ...the afterbirth... was still there....if afterbirth is present...... most likely .... there are not ...anymore babies in there......


I do agree... that she may have a tear... or have milk fever really bad... as milk fever.... they don't run high fever and her temp is normal..... :hug:

Sorry she has gotten multi types and amounts atthis time. The poor girl has had every med plus the kitchen sink trown at her. The vet is here now and said at this time we had all ready did everything he could do. She has katoses(sp?) They think. I have to give her shots every 2 hours through the night. I hope I have good news in the morning. Right now she seams stable.
