Hi, I'm curious about something and I'm not sure Google has the answer: is Rh testing a thing in goats? Just for background, if a human mother's blood is Rh negative but her husband's blood is Rh positive, then her unborn child has a chance of having Rh positive blood as well. If this does occurs (and it is not the mother's first pregnancy) then the mother's immune system is likely to attack the unborn child and kill him. Human couples get tested, and then the woman takes medication to prevent this from happening. I've never heard this discussed in relation to goats, and I never even considered it until this year - one of my does had a stillborn kid whose body tissues were filled with fluid. The kid's abdomen was dissented, there was squishy fluid under his skin everywhere; he was fully formed, but filled up like a water balloon. I am now taking embryology, and in humans this condition is called Fetal Hydrops - it is caused by an immune response from the mother, in most severe cases an immune response from an Rh negative mother against an Rh positive fetus. So, is the buck Rh positive and the doe Rh negative? (Two other kids were born with this one and they are perfectly fine. Maybe they were also Rh negative?) Anyway, just very curious about all this now and thought maybe someone knows about this in goats.
