Default Help, very strange things going on here...

Hi. I am new here. I have a 2.5 year old lamancha that I sent out to be bred for the first time. I picked her up and she has not been eating much at all and losing weight the last 2 weeks. She also has a strange white thick cheesy discharge around her rectum and one of her teats is swollen and full of thick white, very much like around her rectum. She has had a very small amount of cloudy/clear/maybe browny vaginal discharge. No fever. No swelling, heat, or reddness on teat. No other symptoms. My vet is not very knowledgeable about goats, but they are the best around. They thought maybe hormone changes from breeding? We are also trying pen G 3cc 2x/day. I have done this for 3 days and no real changes. Any ideas?? Anyone else seen this before??
Thanks
heather

Changes in environment cause stress. Stress can bring on illness and parasites. Did vet run a fecal? How long ago bred? At 30 days blood can be pulled at tested at Biotracking. The brown discharge has me wondering is she slipped or aborted the pregnancy.

I think the stress is at work here. After all this, I am looking to keep a buck here for the sake of decreasing this kind of stress in the future. I did not have the vet run a fecal, I wormed her when she returned home, and before she left. I think I will take a sample in. She was bred Nov 30. I was thinking of doing a blood test to check on pregnancy, it is so late in the season that I would not attempt to breed again. The brown discharge has me concerned also. I did end up giving a dose of duramycin a day ago. What does slipped pregnancy mean? Basically things are unchanged. The swollen white filled thick substance teat is so weird. Thank you for your feedback. I will keep you updated.

I ended up taking her to the vet yesterday. He thought she had a uterine infection or vaginitis caused from live breeding. He started her on a much stronger antibiotic and gave her some omprezole/bisthmuth in case she had stress related stomach ulceration. She had lost about 30 lbs in my guesses. We did and ultrasound and he was surprised that she looked as if she was pregnant, but not sure because it is so early.
I really do not find much information on vaginitis in goat and how to treat. I have another girl that is having slight vaginal discharge, but still eating. I gave her duramycin, but am thinking I need to get a stronger antibiotic for her also.
Thanks again for your feedback
