    My Boer Yearlying Doe that I have talked about in my post "Help Shivering Goat" has a Runimate that has just about stopped. I can feel it move but it is not moving like it should. It just barely rolls up just a tad and stops. I do not have anything on hand right now to give her for this and was wondering if anyone had any home remedies I can do for the time being. It is 10 PM here and I can get something in the morning, but would like to try something tonight.
    Thanks for any sugestions.
    Tina

    Tina have you ever taken her temperature?? short of stealing a cud from another all I can say is yogurt /acidolpholus /probios and probably the most important is to get fluids into her STAT tube her if noting else. PM Vicki for help on this or go to the emergency list and call someone If it were me I would be calling my VET
