I lost a doe a day after kidding. I thought we were dealing with a calcium issue. She was getting treated every 2 hours and even every hour when she was not improving . Her temp only dropped to 100.5 before she died.
We cut her open this a.m. saved part of her liver to be sent out. No worms which I was happy about. I was hoping to find a pool of blood so at least I knew I did not miss anything ...but no such luck. I did however find dozens of large blood clots in the uterus , could this have been the problem?
Thanks , Patty

Sorry to hear about your Doe. Please keep us informed if you get results or figure anything out. When you said calcium issue did you mean hypocalcimia? (think i spelled that wrong) and why are you looking for a pool of blood? I am sorry for all the questions we are pretty new to this. we got our does at a week old and now they have kids 8 weeks old. so i am sucking up as much info as possible, as i feel at a loss most of the time. i did not realize raising goat was up there with rocket science. sure am glad raising my 3 year old son is not as hard...Yet...
