My husband and I made our first attempt at blood drawing to get our does tested for CAE. I have done most of my own vetting for all my animals since I was 12 years old. Vaccinations, worming, nursing through sickness, saving animals that our vet thought didn't have a very good chance.... I've done it all. Except drawing blood. And my "attempt" was a MAJOR FAIL!!! I found the vein, poked it, started getting blood in the tube, then lost it, again and again. My poor doe was so patient, but I finally gave up because I just knew that I would injure her! I grabbed a second goat, only to have the same thing happen. I am discouraged that I will pay a vet's fee to have him draw the blood and then just ship it off myself! Could I be doing something wrong? I watched videos, read the instructions, and still couldn't do it. I know that practice makes perfect, but how much "practice" is my goats going to be able to take?
