    I have a pregnant Nigerian Dwarf goat that should be giving birth any day now and it looks as if she had a prolapse, though I do not know how to help her and I want to try to get things better before she tries to go into labor

    I am sorry for there not being any pictures, I cannot add any to the post since I am a new member, though I will try to find a way to get it where you guys can see what she looks like

    You're not too far from me Welcome to The Goat Spot!
    You should be able to add pictures after your third post. (I believe) so reply then try adding a picture.

    Oh ok you got it! Great. As far as your doe, I believe you need to call your vet on this one , so he can clean and put it back and put in a stitch till she's about to give birth. That's beyond my expertise.

    I flagged these great breeders owners to see if they can help

    Can you put her on a tarp in your backseat? I wish you were a bit closer, I'm about an hour and a half from you...
    BTW she looks a lot like my doe Luna...whose also preggo :)

    The only vehicle we would be able to get her in without lifting her too high is a small Kia, and the other vehicle we have it a Ford F250 that we would hurt ourselves trying to lift her up into it

    Do you have a car?
    She will fit in any vehicle! Just put a tarp down then absorbent towels and put her in the back seat.

    There are no Veterinarians that make farm calls?

    While arranging her vet visit, rinse the prolapse with cold water (she will HATE this but it will help the swelling which is rapidly occurring) then after rinsing, generously pour normal white sugar all over the exposed tissue (yes I'm serious! Get a whole 5 lb bag of sugar.)

    You need to get her a vet soon or the tissue will begin to die and that's a much bigger issue.

    I'd use the KIA, wouldn't be the first time I put a goat in a car to get to a vet. When's her due date?

    You have to do it . Get neighbors friends or family if you have health issues that prevent lifting. She is a small goat and it can be done. She will fit fine in the Kia, I'm not understanding the issue

    We don't know, but her daughter, who was born back in February just gave birth about two hours ago, so her and my other pregnant doe should be giving birth any day now

    The only problem now is that our vet closed thirty minutes ago and I don't believe they are open on Sundays
