Kid in trouble
[Return to Topics]

Doe had little ones last night and found two dead kids this afternoon. Another doe had a kid sometime this morning??????and we now have it in the kitchen. When I found it, it look like its mother didn't want it. Fine with me, would like to raise on bottle. Problem, won't eat. Went to Tractor Supply and got colostum supplement for calf. Will not take bottle. What to do? thanks.........Ray

Check the shape of its mouth, too. I have delivered kittens and puppies w/cleft palate or
at least the shape was not right to nurse from
its mother. Good Luck.

Hello E.Ray. I have two newborns on bottles that are a couple of days old. Is the kid up and moving around? If it is , just keep trying. Sometimes you have to pry their mouths open and give them a little taste. Be careful not to poor too much down it's throat because you don't want the milk in the lungs. just a couple drops at a time. If it's hungry it will figure it out and begin to suck strong on the bottle nipple. If the baby lacks energy it will probably need a tube inserted directly into the stomach to give it enough energy to suck on the bottle. Good luck. VKG...
