    I am so sorry your doe is going through this Nancy, I can't imagine how hard it must be, I'd be a mental and emotional mess, so my heart is with you. I'll keep her in my long list of prayers tonight!

    Glad you gave her the Calcium.... how is she today?

    Pale gums... give her some iron....
    If you already wormed her... she needs the 10 days later dose as well...

    Also.. cocci may be present...can you get a fecal on her? :hug:

    WHEW! She is doing much better. It's always a good sign when they try to run from meds. :wink:
    Left a small container of feed on the rail of her pen; she had knocked it over. She could have opened it but it didnt fall her way.

    Today brought her a bucket of regular ACV water, she sucked down 1/2 of it. Apparently didnt like the stuff with Bounce Back in it cause that was hardly ever touched. I think today will be her last round of anitbiotics; maybe turn her loose tomorrow or at least bring her grown daughter in for a few hrs.

    Brought her back in with the rest of the herd yesterday. Did my heart good to see her at the hay rack with her front legs up on it.

    Wow. I just re read this. Half of it I didnt remember, glad it was written down.
    Tim I did talk to Leslie shortly after.
    She speculated that due to the toxins of last dead kid caused the other two to expire. It sounded like last kid was dead for quite sometime, hair does not come off like that in a 12 hr period.

    It sounds like they were gone for a long time ... at least you got everything out and she has to be more comfortable. We dealt with our first DOA kid this year and it was terribly hard ... I'm so sorry.

    The first two were freshly expired, possibly within hrs of labor, We think it was the last one that caused their demise.
    All in normal position.
    This doe presented bloody string several hours before, never going into real labor, not a good sign.
    When there's dead kid(s) doe stops labor in my experience. And its rough getting them out.
    DOAs are never fun, I feel for you. :hug:
