Wish we had a vet close by, but we don't. Had a doe stressed out all fall and winter. She lost her status in the Trip. She was near the top and went right to the bottom. She had last year's twins with her all year, got pregnant and kidded this spring. She ignored the kid and we lost it. She got depressed and blank stared alone from the Trip all day. Bloated a few times after the birth, then started losing weight FAST! Today she started with the diarrhea. This all happened over a few weeks. I culled her today and took a look around inside. When I cut her open, you would have thought I turned on a water hose. Clear fluid poured out of her ... and a lot of it! All organs looked normal. What would cause Ascites? Anyone with a confirmed Johnees goat present with Ascites?
