We have a pregnant doe that laid down and moaned this evening...she acts like she has a bellyache. I gave her pepto and probios. She is a very healthy goat and we know it isn't worms so we are assuming it is just a stomach ache? Any suggestions?

If she is in her last month of pregnancy, moaning is very normal. :) ALL of my does moan in their last month... we do give baking soda though, and keep a close eye to make sure it doesn't mean something other than being uncomfortable. :)

I have a doe who is only a month bred who moans all the times when she lies down... I know she's not sick, just likes to act pitiful!

Is she big with kids??? I have a giant doe due any day now and the last month she has been groaning while she lays down. Next time she lays down what her for a few minutes and see if she chews her cud. Chewing cud is a sign of a happy relaxed goat. The baking soda will not hurt what so ever if she doe end up being fine.

Yes she is Nubian. I have another pregnant Nubian who doesn't moan at all so I wasn't sure what was going on! She is perfectly fine this morning...I guess we will just call her Ms. Drama from now on :)
