    Didnt eat touch hay,grain or drink much most of yesterday. I let her be was she was ready to kid.
    Last nite gave her calcium drench. Kidding went smooth.
    By this am drank very little water gave more drench & a Vita B shot. Usually that kicks in right away. Brought hot water/molasses bucket.
    Gave several clicks probious.
    How long before I do what? Thanks for your ideas!

    do you have goatade or nutri drench? I usually drench my does with 12 cc'c of goatade and a tums after delivery. Is she acting normal other than being off feed? Are her gums pale... does she have a fever?

    Gee no wonder the B wasnt kicking in like I had hoped its 2yr exp.
    She only ate a little grass hay like a mouthful but she did take some minerals when offered & ate some of her BGD; by hand of course.
    Katrina the kids are doing real well, they are honkers (d&b) when the buckling was sliding out he just kept coming & coming think his name is gonna be Boa.
    These are my 75%.

    One more to go for now. But I dont think she will ever kid I've given up paying attention to all her moans & groans.

    Give her some probiotic paste and baking soda ....cut out the grain until she gets back on track........good call on the vitB ....that really helps with appetite... she may have a tummy ache.... :hug:

    Thanks all...she is doing better. Awhile ago gave her another dose of B mixed with the magic mix oral. Also the probiotic paste earlier.
    She may have had a mild case of preg toxemia. Keeping an eye on her for sure.
    Pam what is the reason I should hold off on her grain? (she has been held hostage in kidding pen the last couple days)

    Glad she is doing better.... :hug:

    If her rumen is off....it helps to not give her grain.. to snap her back quicker... :wink: :hug:
