you bet your bippy I paid for those blood tests. And yes I do need to follow up. I need to get over my bad attitude about this vet. We were in the parking lot, by my request, I did not want to unload and reload the goat. There was a riding lawn mower not 15 feet from us, we had to yell at each other over the noise. Vet takes temp, oh my 104*, I say good, she glares at me and says it should not be over 102*, I say whatever.
A bit more on my two 3 month abortings. The first one was a discharge that lasted over one month. Vaguely like a post kidding discharge, but at one point it looked like ground meat. Second was the actual fetus' on the ground. This was the same goat, 7 years old, reliable, strong Togg/Nubian cross. She had quads last year, but had complications. On a Wednesday she kidded tripplets and the afterbirth. By Friday, she was still having contractions and going down hill fast. I took her to this same vet, so as to have some continuity of care? The vet pulled the fourth kid, boy was I surprised. Did not know a goat could pass the afterbirth and still have a kid inside. So I do not know if this goats' present troubles are a result of last years' complications.
