    I am desperate for help. My doe is due any minute but sounds very congested .She is a pygmy and looks to have at least 2 babies.
    Can I give her penicillin and if so how much

    What do you mean by due any minute? Is she in labor?

    Penicillin is 1cc per 20 lbs. It is fine to give while pregnant but I wouldn't give it if she is in labor and delivering kids.
