    WOW!!! I am amazed at the response! I found this place because one of my goats aborted last night. This looks like exactly what I have been looking for! Everyone here seems like they are great and I still have a lot to learn, and hopefully I will find it here! BTW in from Arkansas!

    YEA!! I'm not alone!!! No I really don't know. I had been busy that day so it was late, but when I went to check on the goats, I saw the blood on her tail and hind legs. She was due in about 2 weeks. Now of course my ds's dog was in the shed with her. I found where she had had it at, but there was no little one. The dog on the other hand looked like it had had a good meal from the look of it's belly. She hasn't acted like she's felt good since. I think it was a one-time thing since the rest have carried to term and all had beautiful healthy babies. I wish I could have seen hers though just to make sure.

    Oh yes! I think she did, but I think it must have been dead because the dog isn't a killing type. I think she just aborted or miscarried for some reason and the dog just happened to be in the right place and took advantage of it. That's all I can figure since there was no baby to be found and the doe looked gutted, half her old size, and I could no longer feel the baby by palpation and less than 24 hours before it was kicking and pushing on my hand. She was also acting funny(the goat, not the dog!) not her usual happy self.

    Have you taken a temp on the momma? How is her udder? If she isn't acting quite right I would make sure that she doesn't have a temp.

    I am going to bed - but I will be back on at 6:30 am PST!! Good luck!

    Hi rebecca! Big Welcome from SW PA!!

    Sorry your doe lost her baby,, with all seeming well the day before, it's possible she took a hard hit from another that caused the early labor.

    Take her temp...normal is 101-103.5F
    Get her some Nutri Drench and offer her some warm molasses water.

    She will be depressed for a few days missing her baby and her udder is going to be full and tight, uncomfortable.
    Offer her grain and make sure she eats....and give her lots of love.

    Hope she comes around for you, if not...you know where to find us :hug:

    First of all, Welcome to the Goat Spot. Glad you found us but I have to say sorry you had to find us under these circumstances.

    Did I miss it, what kind of goats do you have?

    Are you sure the dog did not get to the baby before?

    I am sorry for your loss.

    By the way we LOVE Pictures.
