I'm new to this forum, I've read it a lot, and it has helped tremendously as I have only had goats for about 1.5 years, but I'm hoping maybe someone out there has run into what I have now. I've asked all my local "goat friends" but they are as much at a loss as I am. I'll apologize in advance for a long story, but I'm hoping the details may help. Last March, I had a 5 year old Boer doe kid with triplets. It was a hard labor, and I had to pull all three kids. All was well for about 3 weeks, and then I noticed she was losing weight. I upped her alfalfa, but the weight loss continued, and her milk production reduced. I gave her calcium, which perked her up, but she continued to spiral. Her eye pigment was very light, so I wormed her with Ivomec, and gave her red cell and vitamin B. She would intermittently go off her feed, but the vitamin B would help her regain her appetite. Around this time I also gave her a round of Biomycin and Probios. Nothing I did seemed to be the right answer. She'd perk up, I'd think we were on the right track, and then she'd crash again, each time spiraling down worse. At some point she started knee crawling. I switched from B12 to B1 and this helped for awhile. Then one day, I went out, and she was laying flat, unable to get up on her own. At this point, she was a bag of bones. I decided it was time to put her down. We had fought this thing for four months at that point. Her three doelings were undersize for their age, but otherwise healthy. I had a lady looking to lease a couple goats for the summer, and she picked out two of them. The one that stayed here thrived, and has caught up in size. I expected the same from the other two. Three weeks ago, the other two came home. They had not been fed properly, and were kept in a horse trailer most of the time. Big lesson learned, and I feel horrible that it was at their expense. One of them had diarrhea, so I started them slowly on medicated grain, and alfalfa. I also wormed them with Ivomec, and gave them each some Probios. One of them is already 1000 times better. She quickly gained weight, and is acting like a kid again. The doeling that initially had diarrhea is not doing as well. She perked up for a few days after the worming, but she hasn't gained any weight. Two days ago, she started knee crawling, but would still stand up. As of today, she can only crawl around on her knees. Her appetite is great, and she seems otherwise healthy, but looking at her is like looking in a mirror at her mom. Maybe I'm being oversensitive because of what I went through with her mom. I've been giving her red cell, and I'll give her BoSe tomorrow (I initially overlooked Selenium Defincency because of the similarities), but I'm really at a loss. Has anyone seen anything like this before? I would take her to a vet, but that's a losing proposition around here. The last time I took a goat to the vet, I was charged $90 to be told that they didn't have a clue, but would be more than happy to perform a necropsy when she died.
