Those cattle uterine bolus's can be used on goats- break one in half, soak in warm distilled water or boiled water then gently squirt inside her (especially if you can't go back in)- use a feeding tube to sort of direct it into the uterus. (warm is less shocky to her, but not too hot).

Thank you so much! She's fully healed other than some normal postpartum bleeding. I had never seen a goat vagina that looked so bad. It was like a scab on the whole thing. But using that ointment once and the spray several times a day for 3 days basically made the whole scab come off at once and perfect healthy skin was underneath. After 3 days of spraying it I decided it should probably just dry up and I think it ended up working out perfectly. She's eating like a cow and an awesome mom. Thank you guys all so much!

I have some on order in case this ever happens again and I'm so grateful to have learned about it. You guys are the best! A friend of mine is expecting kids from 5 does next month for the first time so I'm sharing with her as well since I'll hopefully never need 50 uterine boluses. ♡

Banamine is rx only. And ask for a whole bottle not just a few doses. It is not expensive by the bottle but can get pricey per shot. It is a great med to have on hand.

Also... we use biomycin instead of la..... it is the same med just no stinging. ;).
