I’m taking my 9 month old Boer/Kiko doeling to the vet in a few days and she needs to abort a pregnancy so I will have her luted...
My questions are...
1.) Is she too far along for it to work? (She was bred Nov.2nd 2020 and I was told you can Lute anytime after 14 days)
2.) How long will her recovery be?
3.) Should I keep her away from my other pregnant does for a few days?

This is my first time Luting and i’m really nervous:( (any answers would be helpful right now)

Not too far along.

It is basically like normal labor and lean out time.

Some do keep the doe away from pregnant does for a couple of days in case.
Others don’t, so it is up to you.

If you are pregnant have someone else do it.

It must be inserted deep within the muscle.
How much were you told to give her?

After she’s luted, just treat her like a doe that just kidded.
I also had to do a doe last year and following that protocol worked perfectly. Watch for FAMACHA in case of worm bloom, watch for mastitis If she gets an udder. Give her warm molasses water etc...all the normal things and give her a day or two to recover from the labor.

My vet will be doing it next Thursday the 7th at 9:00. So I won't have to do it. Thank you for your help! I'll probably keep her away from my pregnant does for a few days.
