My poor mommy, Sapphire, a Nigerian Dwarf was absolutely fine when I got home at 3 this afternoon and then at about 4:30, she was looking a little bloaty so I went and got her some baking soda. She lapped up a bunch. But then she moved on, wanted her supper (goat pellets, a little sweet feed and sunflower seeds) the same thing she gets every night and she REALLY gobbled that down. About another 20 minutes to a half hour later, her poor belly was so TIGHT and she was crying; she'd try to lay down, only to jump right back up. There was nothing I could do to comfort her. My hubby took his truck to work today, so I had no way to load her up and take her to the vet 45 min away. I thought I was going to loose her. But I called DH, he brought home his truck and off we went. The vet has kept her overnight, he said she has an impacted ruminant. She did seem to feel better after he put the tube down and relieved some pressure, and he gave her something to neutralize things in there and get things moving again. He said she probably ate to many acorns (the leaves and acorns are falling from the trees like crazy here right now). But other than that, I haven't changed her routine at all. Her poor babies are out there in the pen all by themselves for the night. They were sure happy to see us when we came home and absolutely pitiful when we left them down there!!!
