Good morning. I am concerned about my new doe. I have only had her a week. She is a 5yr old Nigerian dwarf. Experienced mother. Due in beginning of October. Has acted normal until this morning and taken very well to her new home. This morning I went out to feed "Breezy" and she was quiet, doesn't want to eat, gums pale. Temp is 98.6 . Doesn't appear to be in labor but my other doe never showed signs, just popped out three kids one night. I am going to worm her. Any other thoughts/suggestions?

Probios, Fortified B Complex, get her temp back up

Look up shipping fever. You may want to treat her for that.

I would really be watching her. Is she raspy in her breathing?

Like Karen said you have to get that temp up. Offer her warm molasses water. If her eyes are pail I would give her some iron. not a lot but she needs some now even if it is in raisins.
