I have a question I want to run by you... The doe that I bred this month (only 10 or so days ago, so not sure yet if it took) is going to the vet tomorrow to be disbudded again. She's had it done 3 times already (by someone else) and none of them worked. I was going to have it done sooner, but the vet advised that I wait and make sure they are indeed horns, b/c if just scurs, it may not be worth putting her through that again. Well, they're indeed horns. She and one of my bucks who has a large, unbreakable scur curving around and pressing on his skull are to be sedated, given pain meds, and disbudded. I had them do this with another doe who needed re-disbudding, and they did a beautiful job without all the screaming and struggle that can come with re-doing the horns of an older doe. Question is, do you think this will cause her to abort if she is bred? (stress, or meds?) Are there any other precautions I should take or anything specific I should mention/ask the vet? Also, since I'm having one of my LGDs spayed at this time, too, they recommended that I just leave everyone overnight, rather than making 3 trips up there. They have a barn and will feed them according to my directions. If you were me, would you leave them, or make the extra trip (45 minutes one way) to get the goats home the same night? (The dog will have to stay the night, regardless, and the other LGD will get spayed when this one recovers so I can have at least one "on duty" at all times.) Thanks for any advise and/or suggestions!
