Over the weekend I had a doe give birth to twins. I posted on here for help with the one that was living which was awesome. People on here are so helpful. That being said now I would like some input on the doe. BTW I lost both kids. :(

My doe had kids on Saturday evening. Her appetite is good. Up moving around. She did have some afterbirth hanging Sunday afternoon so to be on the safe side I gave her oxytocin yesterday along with penicillin. This morning she is up and eating. She has a little diarrhea and some discharge. I took her temp just to make sure she wasn't running a fever. Her temp is 98.3. Is this something I should be overly concerned with. I am not noticing any chills. Like I said she is eating and is up and moving. Drinking and urinating also.

Any thoughts on this or any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Suggestions on getting temp up. With a temp that low should I be giving her grain?

Could you tell me what the B complex and the probios are for. Never used either one. Also are both of those over the counter or do I need to get from vet.

I have only had goats for a couple of years and this is my first health problem I have had.

Thanks

You can get both at TSC. Probios puts good bacteria in the gut. B Complex is a general well being and gives them extra thiamine.

Put her in a stall with a heat lamp.

No grain since she has diarrhea. Give her hay only until she is back to pellets.
