So sorry for your loss. My vet uses gas to put goats down for surgeries as well.
But, we haven't had to do a C-section, so I don't know about that. Sorry again.

This all sounds kinda strange . The did not even check her before they gave her gas , they did not ask you if it was OK and warn you of the risks .

Unless an xray was done and showed a train wreck in my opinion they should have not done the csec. I would have given her more meds to dialate check her then given drugs for the contractions.

Sorry you lost her .

My thoughts as well Patty. I cannot for the life of me figure out why they wouldn't do a standing C-section. Did the in office vet that came in even do an exam before coming to the conclusion of a lay down C-section?

Sorry for your loss. It almost seems that something else was going on with your doe and her kids that you lost them all. If she'd stopped eating, maybe ketosis. The vet I currently use doesn't do a standing C section either. He puts the doe under. He sectioned two of my goats and several belonging to friends and so far, all goats and all but one kid made it and that kid was deformed. I think he injects an anesthetic. I did help another vet with a standing C section on one of my goats several years ago, and that's the doe we lost. Her uterus had torn and it was taking time for them to try and repair it. She went all shocky, would have needed a histerectomy, so I told them to put her down. I seriously don't think she would have survived spaying. The kids both made it. As for gas, I did see my vet use it once. I had a yearling doe who had a uterine prolapse after delivering her baby. The vet tried a spinal block to push it back in, but she kept contracting and that wasn't enough. He gave her some gas to further relax her, saying that was safer than an injection. She did OK.

Sadly, most vets don't know about standing c-sections. I had to promise mine the slide show from Sandy and a contact number before he will consider changing. At least he is more than willing to work on goats and learn/try new things, though!
