    Cmpk tastes awful. The carrots sound way better! I give my does calcium Gummies. Most love them. They are in vitamin aisle at Walmart.

    Often used for Calcium booster

    CMPK D3 Drench is an oral Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Vitamin D3 Supplement for use before and after freshening in Dairy and Beef Cattle, to help maintain normal levels of these nutrients, CMPK D3 Drench is also suggested for sheep and goats.

    How is your doe doing this evening? Assuming she was induced several hours ago is her labor active yet?

    I gave her the meds at 12:30 today. She is miserable. Still some pushing from the pressure back there at times. Starting to see some discharge and she us not happy. I am just praying that as she dialates some of the pressure goes down so she can push those babies out

    So do I. Checked your thread a little earlier, figured you may have had a long night with her and would get back to us later this morning.

    I checked on her throughout the night. At 6:30 this morning she was passing the water sack. She was pushing and nothing was happening. I was unable to feel the babies so I had my neighbor come over. He couldn't feel them either. I knew we needed to get them out. The vet came about 9:30. She had triplets. The first two were stuck and didn't make it. The last one is weak but still fighting. He is in the house on a heating pad. The doe is unable to stand so I milked some colostrum and syringe feed the baby. Mom is eating but still unable to get up. Started her on antibiotics and some pain meds. Hopefully she will be able to care for him soon. 20210123_123626.jpg 20210123_131924.jpg 20210123_131922.jpg

    Am sorry there were 2 stillborn. Hopefully the gorgeous brown buckling and the doe continue to gain their strength. Let her see, sniff, lick, her surviving baby; offer him to her rear end first. You may have already done this, so my bad if you've been there done that.

    The buckling seems to be doing well. He is eating well. The doe is still struggling. Still can't stand, crying a lot, and still hasn't passed afterbirth.

    How her temp? Is she staying upright? Are you working her legs for her, adding resistance? Goats loose muscle strength super fast. Laying around doesn't help rumen function...she need to get up, even with help. Use a large towel like a sling and see if she will get up with support. The longer she's down, the less likely she will get back up.
    Would do b complex daily to support her system. Probiotics to keep proper flora.
    Might try a uterine flush. 50/50 warm vinegar and water...use a larger syring or squeeze type bottle to flush her out.

    Prayers she rallies

    So sorry Aimie. @happybleats gave some very good advice in the post a few before this one. The doe needs more after care yet.

    Very possibly some more oxytocin to help pass the after birth, more than likely a round of antibiotics, a uterine flush as described by "happybleats" is needed as well, would do that as soon as possible. Wouldn't hurt to check her inner eyelids also.

    Try to help support her so she can stand up. Maybe prop some bales of hay beside her once you get her in an upright laying down position. Laying flat makes it more difficult to breath properly, causes the rumen to want to shut down and makes it more difficult for recovering.

    Aimee, the doe is suffering. (pray)

    Thank you for all the advice. She is on antibiotics and B Complex. I tried a sling tonight and was unable to get her up:( It is her right rear leg. I will get some more oxy and flush her out in the morning. I should have someone that can help me hold her up in the morning. I am also drenching her with electrolytes and giving probias.

    Good luck with her. (console) I know how difficult all of these complications can be. Hang in there, okay. Whatever the case may be, we are here if you need us for advice, to hear the success stories, for a boost of strength, for words of encouragement, to vent out frustration, a shoulder to cry on ...
