OK, we've been dealing with pinkeye for a while now (over a week, maybe two weeks). If pinkeye is caused by the Chlamydia bacteria, does that mean that every goat on the place that gets pinkeye will abort their babies when they have them? I haven't been able to find anything to tells me whether or not the abortion chlamydia and the pinkeye chlamydia exist together or if they are contracted separately and differently. It is very confusing. I all of them got pinkeye and it is cause by chladmydia, can I expect them all to have abortions? My buck has pinkeye too. Should I be worried about him passing something sexually to the does or is that form different? I just don't know if they get Chlamydia pinkeye and that means they have the STD form too, or what????? I'm not sure what to do at this point. We bought some goats from a friend and I do believe that he meant well but he was feeding them bread, no minerals, grain or feed....just bread crumbs and a small plot of pasture for 8 goats. She looks really thin. I know two of them had quite a worm load b/c they had diarhhea with worms in it!! Yuck!! All in all, I'd say they were not being properly cared for. He dewormed them with Positive Pellet Goat Dewormer. I guess I'd say that I don't have much faith in that stuff!! I used some Ivercide and they are all better. Anyway, this doe was pregnant and she aborted 2 bucklings yesterday. I'd say they were at least 3 wks early and maybe 4 wks early. They didn't make it, obviously. She was showing no signs of the pinkeye and seemed to be OK. Here's another questions now.....given the fact that I have pinkeye on the place, should I assume that she aborted due to the chlamydia bacteria or would it more likely be from lack of nutrients/minerals? Also, I haven't seen her pass the placenta and it has been over 24 hours now. These new goats all came from the same place and two of them were already bred and due in October. This is one of them. The other one is blind right now and on treatment. I could assume that the buck that served them was a carrier. What I am glad of is that my buck didn't breed them so he could be OK. Can anyone just shed some light for me? I don't understand all this but I want to. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you so much!!
