Last year I had a doe miscarry and Deborah mentioned that bleeding is not always a sign of miscarriage. The doe last year did miscarry but she bled bright red blood for 4 days. She was 8 weeks along.…Continue

I recently lost a goat and was shocked by the necropsy findings so I have some questions. This particular goat has had issues with parasites a lot over his two years of life. When he started having…Continue

False Negative?

Ok ladies I have a doe who is typically very regular in her heat cycles. She came into heat at the end of September and I AI’d her. I thought I got the timing really well but it’s still AI so I…Continue

Gender selection/specific gender boosting

Ok so I know that on average there will be 50% boys and 50% girls. I also know that it’s possible for some bucks and even some does to consistently produce more of one gender than the other. Just…Continue

"You could get a blood test or ultrasound to check for pregnancy if you really want to know.  If you have a second doe that starts bleeding, I'd be thinking about infectious causes of abortion. I'd probably get verification that they…"

"Yes last year when the doe did bleed that long and did miscarry I was dealing with copper issues but those have gotten under control. The doe this year had one day of some brownish bloody discharge then never had anything again. It didn’t even…"

"If you had told me the doe bled for four days, I'd have said that sounded like a miscarriage. I've seen a little blood one time where a doe didn't miscarry, but extended bleeding like that would definitely make you think of a…"

Bleeding during pregnancy

Last year I had a doe miscarry and Deborah mentioned that bleeding is not always a sign of miscarriage. The doe last year did miscarry but she bled bright red blood for 4 days. She was 8 weeks along. Now today I let my girls out of the barn to find another doe who is currently 13 weeks pregnant has some blood crusted on her tail and vulva. It was light and dried up so I just planned to keep an eye on her. A couple hours later she has some more brownish discharge just at the opening of her…See More

"Thank you! Yes I’ve made a lot of changes even in just the last couple of months and that includes a lot longer quarantines. I appreciate your input and info and as always if I gain any new information from these girls or have any updates…"

"Maybe you were thinking like me back in 2004 -- as long as I'm buying from herds that are tested negative for diseases, I don't have to quarantine. And then I learned that it's not that simple. I bought two new bucks this summer, and…"

"Once again problems bought and sold… the other doeling that is very small was a purchase. She had a bad case of diarrhea on her trip out to me from her original farm. She still had a little the day she got here but I gave some corid and it…"

Deborah Niemann-Boehle replied to Maggie's discussion Copper toxicity
"As the old vet adage says ... most problems are bought and sold. It definitely sounds like those two bucks brought in the parasite problem.  Did that doeling have a case of coccidiosis around two months of age? Sometimes that can damage the…"

"To be honest I think you’re exactly right about bringing them in and I’m even almost 100% certain which two bucks brought me this problem. Both of them are now dead, one of them is the buck originally discussed in this post. I never used…"

"Yes his black turns red his red turns gold then white if I let it go. I just didn’t have a more extreme picture because I try to give him copper as soon as he starts looking bad again. At his worst he was so faded he looked like a completely…"

"This is why tapeworms get blamed for causing problems -- because you can see them. You can't see barber pole worms or any of the other roundworms, and you can't see coccidia. My kids are 25 pounds by 2-3 months so this is not a new problem…"

"If I understand correctly, he was 2 year old, and you got him when he was a year, and he has been sick a lot over that year? It's tough when you get a goat from someone else because you may not know what kind of supplementing and deworming…"

Maggie replied to Maggie's discussion Copper toxicity
"Thank you! I probably had the days wrong because the last time I had given safeguard it was for tapeworms. That’s the thing is that I hadn’t wormed him or given him copper in several months and he is the only one that had continually had…"
