    I hope this is not a sign of things to come...My fav doe Latte kidded with twin bucks Wednesday night. they were both coming at the same time so it took some manuvering to get them out. I was VERY surprised when the were both breathing! After all was said and done, the one was very swollen in the head area due to being stuck and he also inhaled some fluid~I treated him with 1/2 cc Draxxin and 1/2 cc of Dex..he is doing better but now his front legs fold over when he trys to stand. He is a big boy and I put some vet wrap ont he legs~not too tight but to give extra support..not helping. #2 is doing fine of course he is a lamancha buck born with elf ears :wink:
    Now Mama, she was given nuflor, a Super B-shot, I gave her a revive treatment and last night some YMCP paste. She is a doll and I have been milking her one the floor because she is not very good on her feet right now.
    After revive she got the major poops so I gave her some sulmet and probiotics...am I over treating her??? any ideas on how to bring her around? :?

    First off congrats on the new babies.... and great job ...getting them out ... :thumb:

    With a support.... take a layer of vet wrap and wrap the leg.... then put a piece of stronger type cardboard or a flat stick..or something.. that won't dig in and hurt the babies leg.....make it long enough ...to support the area... but not to short....it should extend beyond the weak area...so it will get that support needed.....put it on the side of the leg.... that is bending the wrong way ...and vet wrap it on.....not to tight... like you mentioned.... then let the kid walk and see if it is supported....if it is your good to go if not....you will have to revamp the support stick.... the longest I ever had a kid supported like that was for a week.....also a bo-se shot wouldn't hurt..... good luck....

    Wow.... the Doe is getting alot of different things...not sure on the interactions....if combining all is good or bad... :hug:

    Sounds like...Your Doe ..has milk fever... treatment for it is crucial... :hug:

    best thing to do with pics is to upload them to photobucket or a similar page, when you load them directly here, by the time they get small enough, its hard to see how cute everyone is! :) Good luck with your weather and future kiddings.
