    Do know the banamine may lower the temp too.

    It hasn't in this case. Doing as my vet instructed, when on the banamine her temp actually goes up. Of course not what many would think but it makes her more active and gets her eating- raising her temp :)

    Sure enough, about 2 hours after the banamine her temp went up to 101.5

    Temp is back down to 100.5 but she is eating her soaked beet pulp, asked for BlueLite and milk- which I gladly gave her.

    I may take her back up to the vet tomorrow to re-check her wbc and calcium levels.

    Of course during this I've come down with some bug/cold. It, in addition to the stress these goats are putting me through is really kicking my butt. I'm spent and so loopy right now, I ended up spilling the milk from 3 goats trying to pour it from the bucket into a jar. Apparently it is a near impossible task right now. I ended up spilling over an ounce of the CMPK liquid too :confused:

    I'm just ready for my girl to be back to 100%.

    Going to take Ruth back to vet to re-run blood work (I would just pull the blood myself but vet doesn't want it in a red-top, and I only have 1 lavender top tube). Wish us luck!

    @FoxRidge Thank you! I'm really liking these kids!

    OH! Ruth's temp was 101 this morning! That was just over 10 hours since her last round of meds, and even longer since she had the banamine. That's over a degree higher than what I've been dealing with every morning....progress!

    Thanks all! The WBC and calcium levels are looking better. WBC still needs to come down but it is still progress! Going out to take her temp now & give meds.

    The doelings are BEAUTIFUL:love:
    Hey..you take it easy! Get some EmerGEn C. Please get some rest & eat chicken soup. If your not well, the goats will suffer!
    You & your doe need a time out! Bless your heart!

    Thank you! No rest today......spent the day cleaning pens and doing buck care. Weigh, hooves, famacha, deworm (prepping them for a move) the whole bit.

    Just came in from milking and feeding...Ruth has been able to maintain her temp for the last two days without banamine! WooHoo!!!!!!! I am so happy. She gave me a scare. She definitely was going septic. Thinking we will be okay though. Thank goodness!

    Millie (NOA Lamancha) is in the kidding stall! Today is 146 for her.
    Poor girl must've slipped and hurt her shoulder. Always something with these goats! She was probably charging after another one of the does, she's a brat like that. :rolleyes: She's loving her own digs. She gets so grouchy when she's pregnant. Can't blame her though.

    Millie is getting close! If she has a doe we’ll keep her :) Bucks go for meat.
    She hasn’t kidded in years (we pulled her out of retirement) so good thoughts are appreciated! We’ll likely co-parent this kid/s as she has always dam raised in the past and is such a good mom......and I don’t particularly like milking Millie so it’s a win/win.
