While looking at some pullets a man had for sale at his "farm", we could not help but notice a large Alpine doe who was scooting around on her knees, because her hooves were horribly overgrown (6-7 inches!!!). Seeing this poor animal broke my heart, and after a gave the man a piece of my mind, I offered to buy her, which I then did (he also had a calf that had been dead for several days in the shelter the goats use to sleep in...). We loaded her into the back of hubby's SUV, and off we went. I have 5 goats of my own (a small Alpine/Pygmy doe with her 2 kids, and 2 Boer girls who are about 6 months old), and we do all their hoof care, but with this Alpine doe, I ended up calling a farrier. He trimmed her hooves, and now she can walk again (cautiously and somewhat stiff, of course, but walking). She also has an uneven udder, and the right teat tends to get clogged, which is possibly due to mastitis, but I have been milking her out 3-4 times a day, feeding her back a bit of her milk (to stimulate her immune system), massaging her udder with peppermint oil, and it looks like the blockage is dissappearing. The udder is no longer hot, the tip no longer purple, and she has no temperature. I have wormed her and will do so again 10 days later, and I have her on the same food my other ones are on, which is Orchard/Alfalfa hay, free choice minerals, free choice baking soda, a cup of BOSS per goat per day, and Purina goat chow, which is the only feed our TSC never runs out of. Her stool was clumpy and slimy the first 2 days, then got nomal, but now is soft again. What could be the culprit? The wormer? The BOSS? Letting her drink a small amount of her own milk? Should I wait for it to rectify itself? What else can I do for her right now?
