4 days latter and still no kids. My mistake it was not the amneonic sack, it is a mild prolaps vet said to keep an eye on her and all should be ok. I would like to thank Donna and would highly recomend the goat 911 service, they responded promptly and had good advice. When the kids do finaly come I will let ya all know. I just hope this isn't a sign of things to come. This is my first doe to come fresh this year out of the 7 that were bred. Wish me and the goat well please.

What are you calling the goat 911 service?

Go to my first post and check out Donna's post she posted the link for Goat 911, or do a web search for it. Great idea who ever started it.

I am glad you had a vet look at her and this is why I did not respond to the original post: in cases like birthing where time is of the essence and delays may lead to disaster, it is no time to be trolling a discussion board, but rather the effort is better spent getting a pair of experienced eyes to look at her ASAP. A fibre-optic link doesn't let anyone see what they need to see to make a proper diagnosis and dispense correct advice. People often call me on the phone, describe symptoms, and expect me to diagnose the problem. Sometimes I can give a ballpark idea, but in cases like this, I have to tell them, "I can't diagnose what I can't see." Certainly everyone's previous advice on this topic was well-intended and reflected a lot of experience on the part of some respsondents, and I do not wish to denigrate their input. Mainly, I am glad it was not more serious than it turned out to be.

Please don't take this wrong!!! I don't have a vet in my area any more that works with large animals and no one has seen the goat yet. I had to call a vet acouple hours away from me and he told me what to do over the phone. I had already called several vets before I ever came here. I was on line looking for some help out of my area and while I was waiting for help I thought I would post here to see if anyone here could help out. I take alot of pride in my live stock and would never trust there heath soly on advice from a message board but there is some great knoledge here so why not tap into it. If I had a local vet there wouldn't be a problem. I have since met a small animal vet that said he has general animal knoledge and is willing to learn abought goats and sheep do to all the calls he has recieved since my vet died but this is out of his range for now. Have a good day and things are going to be better. Thanks just had to vent

Your So right, but when you are in trouble and you can not get to the vet, or it is late, and he/she says I CAN BE there in the morning and you need help now, help can be a hard thing to come by at times, and there is only one vet. near us and he is 45 minutes from us or us to him.
Have a great day

I feel humbled by your message, I hope you post their pictures, I love goats, any kind, they are the love of my day.
I have not yet had this problem, I know that prolaps can be repaired but the problem will still be there for you next time, and I hope it does'nt happen, I wish you well, and hope everything goes well, There is no place I would rather be than in the birthing stall helping to bring the kids into this world, the mama's do not need me I know, but boy you should hear them when I am not their, hehehe, midwife to the nannies and they know it, God ya gotta love it.
I had my oldest registered nanny ~ my very first one Gary {hubby} got for me kid Monday, Gosh pretty the little doe is red with frost on her crown and on her ears, and eye stripes, with black and brown stockings, and the buckling is a deep dark red with black stockings, Her registered name will be Bucky's Copper Kisses and the Buckling is already sold, he leaves Friday. They want to bottle feed, So I am in the process of getting him bottle trained, want take much, There is nothing like watching new life come into this world, I get teary eyed with joy each time, and I have been at this for years.

I wish you a happy kidding season and have lots of
little nannies.
