I have an older doe in my herd that has developed a weird thing today. She is making snoring sounds with every breath and is grinding her teeth frequently. Wondering if this is normal? We are new to goats, so I am stumped. Any ideas?

Sounds like tummy trouble ? Did you get a temp on her ?
What has she eaten , including any plants or trees available to her..
Check eye and gum color as well. Do not give her any grain.

Do you have any Rhodes on your property ? They are highly toxic.
I can understand about the snow , but leave goats to their own devices and they will dig it up . Just trying to narrow things down here.
Did you get a temp or eye color ? Has she been drinking enough water during this ? Do you have any MOM ?

Temp 102.1 color pale pink she seems to only snore when she is laying down. No banamine but can get some if need be. She has been drinking water fine. And eating hay. I offered the soda however she wouldn't eat it while I was there. Her age is 4

Temp is ok , but I'm concerned about the eye color. When was she wormed last ? She might have a heavy worm load. Whatever you do , you don't want to give it orally just in case she is loaded.
