My doe is on her third year birthing. The last two were singlets but this year she looks like a beached whale, thus maybe twins? Her belly has dropped, ligaments are gone, udder has filled partially and is making milk. She is biting at flanks some, getting up and down and a fair amount, yawning and eating and drinking like a pig! She will try to lay down flat but then cant seem to get comfortable so sits up again. Her respiration rate has been quite high-30 at a low to over 80 at a high point per minute, so visible breathing. Peeing and pooping regularly, sometimes maybe straining as she poops.. If you pester her she moves around vigorously but otherwise is kind of ignoring you. The challenge-this has been going on for 2.5 days. I dont see any mucus, blood or bubbles that usually indicate birth is eminent. I also dont see visible contractions or obvious hard straining of any sort like she is pushing. I did give her a calcium/glycol drench, as well as every 4-5 hours grain covered soaked in honey, vit B shot, and free choice coastal hay (She has had ketosis in a previous pregnancy and is CAE positive, so keeping her in good condition can be hard during pregnancy). Ive seen guidance that goats can be in pre-labor for about a day, but trying to understand when it might be a good idea to palpate and make sure nothing is tangled up or creating an issue. Could it be that as the babies shift for delivery, they are just putting extra pressure on her lungs, thus causing discomfort or that she has a longer than normal pre-labor stage?
