    she was afraid the doe was in to much distress so I suggested she wash up good and try going in.

    She called me back and said she could get pretty far in but there was no baby stuck.

    I told her the doe was getting really close but to get a good nights rest and update me in the morning.

    I havent heard a thing yet this morning, I have to go to work here in an hour but she also has my cell number.

    Stacey, I assume that you are feeling better? I sure hope so I know you were really under the weather.

    RE: Help

    Hi ya'll we talked this morning and she said things were still rolling along and she would update and call Stacey as things progressed. I really want to thank ya'll, She was so distraught when she called me, her first kidding . She thought It would happen kinda of fast I think. So hopefully all will go well. I love you guys so nice to help newbies. God sure will bless ya'll.....

    I got a call saying the doe was droolling out her mouth and has a nasal discharge.

    I recomended she call the vet, as this is out of my league

    When she said drooling is it like literally drooling or is a foamy cud? If its a foamy cud then that is not a problem, just baking soda helps. If its drooling then she should call the vet. What color is the nasal discharge, did she say?

    drooling enough to soak a towl in a short period of time.

    no she didn't say how the nasal discharge was.

    Did she say if she had any other symptoms like loss of control in the limbs or starry eyed appearance? Tremors? Is she weak?

    I think I may have read that sometimes does who are experiencing milk fever can have drooling but I'll have to double check.

    RE: Help

    Yes she called me and asked me to come help her take the kids.......I said no way, she is a sweet girl but she is still young and bless her heart can barely take care of her self......I told her to call the vet also, that if she tried to take the kids she would more than likely loose them all. I hope she took our advice.
