    Sinead is on day 110 today, but it looks like she has Pregnancy toxemia. She has been off in general the past month, nothing I could put my finger on. Just when I would be ready to take her to the vet she would go back to normal for a bit. Well after a whole scary episode this weekend I said enough is enough and took her into the vet today. She got the works! Blood work, Xrays, Ultrasounds and IV fluids, and the pocketbook is just a bit lighter. Vet says there are 3 kids in there but after looking at the Xray myself I think there are most likely 4. They sent me home with a CD with the picture on it LOL.

    Also Sinead's calcium levels were low as well as some other stuff. So while there the vet gave her IV dextrose and Calcium.

    The vet gave me the option of aborting the kids, but with Sinead still acting ok I want to try and save both her and the kids. Then she can retire.

    Here are some pics of her from the other day:

    Here is the x-ray it looks pretty cool,for some reason without the viewer you can only see a smaller pic, but it's still neat.

    I'll keep you in my prayers also. I have a sneaking suspicion she will live and do well just to spite you and your vet. :)

    That is awesome you got an x-ray on CD. I'm sure she'll be fine and you'll have some cute kids bouncing around.

    Would she need to retire? Pregnancy toxemia can affect any goat could it not? I hope she pulls through this fine. I assume they're having you suppliment with calicum. Hope that works.

    Well i'm not positive, we will see if she makes it through this and go from there. Hopefully if I can just get her system balanced again everything will be ok. I finally saw her chew cud last night so that was a big relief.

    She's gonna be thrilled to see me this morning with some propylene glycol and a 50cc shot of Calcium Gluconate. yep. It's gonna be a rodeo down the barn. lol

    Oh and My vet is going to a vet conference Thursday. The author of Goat Medicine, Mary Smith, Is going to be there so she is going to ask her a bunch of questions about Sinead and get back to me! :D

    As predicted it was a rodeo down the barn for sure. :devilish:

    An despite that is was a real pain in the butt it's good she was feeling up to trying to kill me for all I was doing to her. Yesterday she just stood there at the vets while they stuck her with a 18 gauge 2inch long IV. SO the fact she's fighting me today is good. :)

    I had a doe that came down with pregnancy toxiema also. After 5 days of treatment she bounced back for the most part, so hopefully your little girl will be just fine:)
