    No wonder Brutus sold. He looks so nice for a baby that little chunk, lol. Cute new little buckling too. Have you got a name for him yet? And hows super mom Magic doing?

    His registered name will be "Flash My Cash" and I will call him Flash for short.

    Unfortunately, it looks like Magic has a uterine infection and possibly an abscess along her incision. I am starting her on antibiotics today. She's acting great but she is having green vaginal discharge. And she has what looks like a mass where her incision is. I thought it was a hernia at first but it definitely does not feel like it. Vet is having me do a surgical scrub on it and poke a needle near the bottom away from the incision to see what is in it. Of it is pus then obviously an abscess. If it is just serous fluid then no issue. The incision itself actually looks really good.

    For the uterine infection, you can feed her Red raspberry leaf and Boneset herb to help clean it out quickly. You can also keep her on the antibiotics while giving them they just help speed things along.

    Aw, poor baby! I really hope that she gets better quickly and the antibiotics take care of the infections.
    Prayers heading your way!

    Would be giving high garlic doses of 3-4 cloves a day. Hope she feels better soon.

    I lanced it last night at vet's recommendation. It has not filled up again today. It is looking better. Though she hates me now and wants nothing to do with me. Poor girl.

    Sometimes you just have to play the bad guy. She'll forgive you soon. I'm so glad it's not refilling, she should feel better now the extra pressure and weight is off her surgical area. Poor baby!
    Extra neck scratches and animal cookies for being a good brave girl!

    Poor Magic presented with what looks like severe bottle jaw today. Swelling is almost to the point where her airway is compromised. She got dewormed and started on red cell. Also got a shot of Dex for the inflammation, vitamin B, and switched on to a new antibiotic. She is on Excenel now instead of nuflor. She is eating and drinking but is miserable. Milk production has dropped drastically. 20201102_151624.jpg 20201102_151546.jpg Screenshot_20201102-152947_Video Player.jpg

    Poor girl.
    You did the right thing in treating her.
    Now it is wait for things to work and for her swelling to subside.
    Color isn't too bad thank goodness.

    Is she eating and drinking?

    She is still eating and drinking. The swelling is slightly better today and she feels well enough to run from me lol. Milk production is still low though.

    One of our next does due, Freesia. Should be due end of January. Looking like possibly another set of triplets! She has been on mostly just pasture with oat hay as well. And she's quite round already. She is bred to Electro Screenshot_20201103-120632_Video Player.jpg 20201103_120539.jpg
