I was away this weekend , and my dad was taking care of my goats, including my pregnant one. I suspect he was feeding them corn instead of the feed I usually give them. I am sure that is the cause of her stringy rectal discharge, but would their be any other causes? She is eating and drinking, so I'm not to worried.

If that is whats going on, how would i treat that? And it actually got better, I took a pic of her going #2, and there was no more stringy stuff.

Before I would jumped to any conclusions ! I would talk with your dad and be sure what he actually did feed your goats and pregnant doe ? I am not so sure that corn would cause that kind of issue unless he gave them an extra large amount. Changing feed usually causes some change in the stool/poop but it is usually more of a cow patty style of interference than stringy stuff. So check with him. But glad she is eating and seems to be back to normal.

Thank you! Yeah, I'm a worry wart about my animals. She did have some dry smeared cow patty like poop on one of her haunches. I will go out and make sure she is still doing well. I haven't fed them corn in a while, I do remember it can upset their stomach a little bit. Thank you I'm glad shes eating too.
