I have a pregnant doe throwing up! I don't know why. Her litigaments are loose. And she is grinding her teeth. Her udder is full.

Is she kidding?

Her temp in normal. She is not throwing up any more but her mouth is kinda foamy. She is still grinding her teeth. I think she might be having contractions.

could be early stages...they will stretch and move around to get babies set up right...with the choking and foam Im thinking she may have upset her rumen, goats in heavy labor will twist their jaw like a funny yawn..but rarely grind thier teeth...gut pain will cause teeth grinding....I would give her C D Antitoxin and a baking soda drench...1/2-1 teaspon baking soda in enough water to drench and a good dose of probios to kick start her flora...offer fresh water and hay tonight, no feed just yet...if her rumen is off the grain will be hard to digest..

I offered her some charcoal she refused it. She is lying down now. Making lots of noise and having contractions.
