Hopefully you only do get the single dose and never again type, Julie.

Pam, so sorry you have them again. You just can't win lately.

You can get Banamine Paste, but I only have the injectable.

My goats don't like anything out of the ordinary, but she did eat some of her hay last night and this morning. She nibbled at her grain today and wandered outside of the barn for a few minutes to stand in the sun. She is still just running at large in the barn with her remaining 2 boys. She cares for them but they have not figured out how to nurse, so my son and I bottle feed them. It helps take the pressure off Vicki, so she can rest without the hooligans bothering her. I may put her and her 2 sons back in the doe pen tomorrow for a while so she can socialize and the bucklings meet the other 3 boys.

Raven had twins, a buck and a doe. Raven is swiss marked (black with cream trim), the kids sire is reddish brown with spots. Both these kids are bays, throwbacks to their great grandmother who was an Oberhasli. Zoe was killed in the barn fire. Genetics are funny. Lol

So, for this 1 week of kiddings we had-

one single, one twin, 2 triplets and a quad. 1, 2, 3, 4!!!!!!! (actually it was 1, 3, 3, 4, 2)

I remember how bad Satin was after her experience similar to your Vicki's.  She was down for 5 weeks.  We finally gave her a shot of Exceed, and a few days later she popped out of it.  Have you tried Vicki on the cooked oatmeal?  All ours loved that stuff.  It did them a world of good.  I agree, I think I'd give her a banamine shot to help with that pain.  Poor girl.  I feel terrible for her.

Sounds like you're having a buck year.  Congrats on the newest arrival(s).

Can you give Vicki anything for the pain?  It might get her eating.   

Sounds like a great place for the 2 bucklings and good luck on this last doe!

Vicki is hanging in, but won't eat much more than a mouthful once in a while. She did lay down last night, so hopefully the pelvis is healing up.

2 of her bucklings left to an experienced goat home this morning, 2 less mouths to bottle feed. She wants them for carting. They are almost perfect twins.

The last doe from this oops breeding fiasco is kidding right now. She ahd a pretty buck and was getting ready for kid #2 when I gave her a break and left her alone after getting her son dried off. She could have had them yesterday, when it was in the 60's, but nooooooo, she has to do it today when it is back in the low 30's and cloudy.

I have been blessed with very mild mannered milk cows.

Our goats on the other hand.....   The Nubian we had to milk spent her whole time trying to lay down.  My son milked while I held her back end up  Grin   That got old really fast and we were so thankful when her single surviving kid that year could keep her soft enough we could stop.  To her credit she did get better after a few days.  The cheese I made with her milk was awesome.

I have also had to milk a Boer doe on occasion.  She wasn't bad at all and after she realized she couldn't lay down ( what is up with that??)  she stood like a champ.

Glad to hear your experiences are better.  Enjoy that milk.
