In case you missed it on my vacation thread, I came home to a very hurt little girl. We got home from being gone for almost 3 days. I started to do a head count and realized that I was missing 2 does. I started looking around and down by the feeder, I noticed something strange. I went down there and I found Fire, my May 08 Nubian doeling hanging limp from the rebar feeder with her head stuck. I thought for sure that she was dead. I went over there and touched her - no movement. I went to lift her up so I could get her head out and she let out a little noise - oh my she was alive. I pulled her down and stood her up. She couldn't stand. She was so week. Her front legs swollen and "squishy" but it was dark and couldn't see. Stepped into the moon light - it was blood. I held her so that she could stand and rubbed her belly a bit. I took her up to the barn (carrying a 60-70 pound Nubian) and be now she could stand a little but not walk at all. I put her outside the fence and brought her grain and pellets. She started eating (phew!) then I heard hubby come out of the house. I yelled that I had a goat down and asked if he would finish feeding the horses in the other pen for me. He went and fed while I got all my materials together and took her into the house to the bathroom. I took a good look at her. She has a rub burn behind one ear and her front left leg is a bit mangled. One hole that I will leave along, one hole that is about 2 inches long and 1/2 inch wide down to the bone, and then one bigger gash that is more like someone took a cheese grater over it. Temp 102.0 We cleaned the area with iodine and flushed the open wounds. Then i loosely wrapped with telfa and wrapped with vet wrap so that it could drain nicely. She stayed in the house in a large kennel and was wonderful. Not a peep out of her. Tonight I am going to shave and suture the large open wound, put on antibiotic cream, and rewrap. Just to let it heal faster. I am going to do the sutures myself. She is on Vit B complex, Pen G (might switch to LA-200), nutridrench and yogurt. I put her in with two real nice goats today and she was eating well. She was able to stand herself up this morning so that is a huge improvement. I will keep you all posted on how this goes. As long as we can keep the infection out - she will be fine!
