LOL me too
I know this is Easter and you can't get a vet today. I don't think any of my goats EVER got sick during office hours. But if I were you, unless that goat is a LOT better tomorrow, contact the vet about getting some lutalyse and anything else necessary to induce labor. It really sounds like your doe has ketosis and the only real cure for ketosis is delivery of the kids. Also get some propylene glycol to treat the ketosis. You should be able to find some at the feed store. Molasses will help but the propylene glycol is much better. Also, when she starts to go into labor, keep an eye on her. As soon as she is fully dilated deliver the kids manually because in all probability she won't have the strength to push them out herself. As you probably know by now, ketosis is very, very serious. If you think I can help you, PM me.
How is your goat?
Call your vet!
What does propylene glycol do? Their are no vets in my area that would come to the farm and their are no goat farmers nearby that could help so I'll probable have to treat her myself.
Thanks again for your help!!
She is doing a little better. I felt her side and I think the kids have moved back towards her abdomen a little.
Thanks for your help!
Is she up? Eating and drinking normally? Pooping?
Propylene glycol is a simple sugar. It is used for treating ketosis is cattle, sheep, and goats.
How is the goat today?
