Boer doe kidded twins last year, her first with us. One teat would not open, tried milking her, put her on a pump. Could not get a single drop. So we just watched her carefully for mastitis and followed the babies' weights closely. Ended up supplementing one. Fast forward.....same doe just kidded triplets Monday. Oh joy! Same situation but same side is super full and can't empty. It takes up almost the entire udder, very lopsided. It is hot and hard. We went thru that same cycle last time so we are again watching her and babies carefully. My question is this....what is the problem with that teat? Is it possible that there is NO orifice? Is there some sort of treatment option?
