    Thank you everyone. I am sorry I haven't been able to post. You might have seen me on facebook more. :oops: I've been busy both with the goats and life. I wont bore you with my life, so onto the goats. ;P The night Stacey posted I had two or three goats acting off and it was the anniversary of Xcell's death. So I wasn't in a great mood.

    I had one doe breathing hard without much reason. Another just acting off and then Dorcas had a cough, high temp, and wouldn't really eat much. So ALL the goats had their temps taken, and were given some tums. The goat that was breathing hard calmed down after a couple hours. I have no idea what caused it.

    Dorcas though, despite banamine still had a high temp and it wouldn't go down. The next morning I took her to the vet and he agreed with me on some sort of pneumonia and said I was treating her right and doing everything I could for her. Taking blood would have been a waste of money since it was obvious it was an infection so we took a culture.

    That was Monday, it's now wed. I am still waiting on preliminary results, they should be in tomorrow. But Dorcas has slowly improved. She has a nasty junky cough and her milk production has gone way down, but she is eating and drinking almost like normal again. Also her temp has finally returned to the normal 102.5 and not 105. So I think we are out of the woods but I'm not breathing easy yet.

    She isn't going to be taken out of quarantine until I have the results back. Hopefully tomorrow because she is getting tired of being in a stall.
