Okay. Maybe I'm reading too much! And now I don't know if it's okay or not okay and should I worry and should I treat! :/ I have two yearling Alpine does, bred to the same buck, kidding in 14 days. They have had discharge ever since coming back from the breeder. You know...the little bit, smeared under the tail or the hanging "glob" of "goop". One seems to have an opaque, cream colored "glob" hanging all the time. She especially concerns me as her "goop" seems to be different from the other's. My three year old second freshener does not have any discharge. She was milked until 50 days ago and will kid in 14 days, bred to a different buck. She coughs too. Since coming back from visiting the buck, they have had a cough that I have been unable to get rid of...otherwise known as the "cough & toot". I figured all of the pressure from coughing was causing all the goop. As for the cough, I've tried everything (treated for lungworm, gave one a round of Excenel, Vit C, Vit B, Vit E). Afraid to be too aggressive during pregnancy. Hoping to clear it up after freshening. I look forward to hearing some good advice! Thanks!
