What do you do for a lopsided udder? I have a doe who will be 6yrs old this month. She is on her 5th freshening. Last yr she was late and due to a difficult birth in another doe which ended up in her death....we induced her on day 153. Her udder was fine last yr. This yr she is on day 153 today and only is showing milk in one side of her udder. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciate.

no, never. Always fine. Just last kidding we induced her as she was late and she had trouble with the afterbirth. Other than that........nothing

I don't have a clue either but my friend's donkey did the same thing....they gave her a shot and it eased the pain or soemthing and the baby helped bring the milk in that side.

Thanks so much for all the advice. I am hoping too that once kidded the other side will just come on down. It is filling each hr....so hopefully she will kid soon. :shrug:

sometimes one side will fill up sooner/faster then the other side. Wait till she kids to see what happens. You can also get some mastitis test strips for cows at the feed store. They are cheap and it doesn't hurt to test her. Just in case you can catch it early. Better sooner then later, it will be easier to fix if thats the problem.
