It's a disease caused by a retrovirus. Here is an article about it: http://www.tennesseemeatgoats.com/articles2/CAE.html

If your doe is CAE positive, you would take the kids away from her as soon as they are born. You would not want them to drink her milk because that is the way most goats become infected.

If she is far along in her pregnancy, you would wait to test her because at that point, she could have a false negative test result.
The test for it is a blood test. Your vet or you send the sample to a lab.
