Well, I have met this in cows, and the normal remedy is walk her around alot, and it will detach itself. I have not seen this in goats and especially in a FF1, so I thought I should ask. It is clear to me now, with 2 sets of complicated triplets, in 24 hrs, and this placenta problem, thats goats are like cows only on smaller scale. When it came to birthing problems, with goats, I was untill 2 days ago lacking in confindence. I have assisted in many compicated births with cows, and learned alot, but untill 2 days ago in the 5 years I have kept goats I have had normal birthings. So, when I had to step up to the plate, and get in and get these kids out it all came back to me. I cant remember where I learned this, but when you are inside, feeling for heads, legs etc, close your eyes and picture in your mind, what you have your hands on. This is why I love what I do, its not the easy births, its the difficult ones, when everybody survives, that gives me the buzz.
But now back to the point, the girl did pass everthing, through alot of walking about today. The vet suggested 3 cc oxytocin given morning, afternoon and evening 9 cc in total, I declined his suggestion as I thought this was overkill.
