After treating my doe with today is it ok for her kids to still nurse?
At two weeks, I would also intervene and start bottle feeding. The kids should be getting at least 3 feedings a day. It's easier on the tummy, and helps growth. That way you can milk mom whenever and still have milk for babies.Kids are only 2 weeks old meds where in for 12 hours before they where able to nurse again she won't let them nurse unless we hold her which ends up being every 12 hours she seemed a little better last night she didn't struggle so much
Thanks for the advise
I agree, 12 hours apart for nursing is way to long. Those little ones need to eat more often than that. I would also do bottles. That is how they get overeaters, they george themselves, when they get to eat because they are so hungry.At two weeks, I would also intervene and start bottle feeding.

You may want to look into something else for mastitis treatments. You may also consider getting her milk tested to see what exactly we're fighting against (what type of mastitis).She has been wormed 2xs so far 10days apart she has had her CD&T shot her temp is down too 103 her udder was really red and hot I didn't milk her too much but milk was a little watery looking I held her so her kids could milk her she looked a little better last night I did not see her this am my husband did he said he thought she was doing much better she is already getting LA 200 I just don't understand the weight I am hoping that she turns around soon she gets all the grain she wants along with hay and grazing pulse I feed her extra treats trying to get weight on her I bought calf mania to put in her food and started that last night to see if that will help also
