I have a doe that I am milking that had a false pregnancy and never kidded but came into milk anyway. She has now dropped production to less than a quart a milking and I was going to just fry her off but she is having a problem that I can't identify. I rearanged my milk room so I thought that was the problem because she is a very skiddish goat. Afraid of her own shadow I swear. I had to fight her onto the milk stand and then even thought she started eating, as soon as I began milking she began groaning and panting and fighting to get out of the head lock. She was coughing and gagging but I think that was because she was fighting the head lock and choking herself. Yesterday I noticed her sides were swollen and hard. She was in obvious pain so I gave her banamine and probios paste after milking her. I took her temp and it was 101.8 but it was very cold in the barn. She has been doing this every morning sense I changed the milk room and then acts just fine later in the day. I did not milk her this AM but went to watch her after DH said she did not eat her grain. Her sides were again bloated and hard. She was hunched with tail tucked under. She was panting again and trying to lay down but could not get comfortable and kept getting back up and pawing the ground and trying again. I swear just like labor. Her stools are normal and she is peeing fine. She was bred the 16th of October but I really don't think it took. She hangs out at the buck pen a lot.
