    Hi I have a first time mom kidding right now and she has been in labor for about 2 hours now. With my other does they seem to progress more than she is and I am scared.

    She has the little bubble of the sac out but thats it and its been this way for the last hour and a half, does anyone know an amount of time that I should call the vet and help her???? This is my first time dealing with a doe that hasnt progressed at all it seems!!!!!!!

    Go in and pull that kid NOW! It's likely already dead...but get in there and get it out. The vet won't get there fast enough, you're going to have to do it.

    She needs intervention now. Can you wash up and/or use gloves and go in to see if the baby is positioned incorrectly? You need some sort of lubricant to do this.


    Call your vet and then take a few minutes to read through this, if you haven't and then get busy: http://fiascofarm.com/goats/kidding.htm - it sounds like you need to help this momma and baby.
