Very sick baby goat... help?
Our miniture doe had twins yesterday. She didn't seem to be taking care of them, but my father insisted she knew what she was doing, since she had raised a set of twins last year.
One was found dead this morning, and the other was chilly and our outside dog was laying beside it, nuzzling it and trying to make it stand up. (The mother was ignoring everything around her, mostly like she did yesterday. We're getting rid of her soon, she stomped another doe's babies earlier this year.)
Now its in a box, under a lamp in our living room. We've been trying to convince it to take milk from an eyedropper (got an estimated ounce into it already... it did swallow) but its fading fast. We coaxed baking soda water into it and it cried and perked up a bit, but not much.
We're pretty sure its hopeless, but hate to quit a fight before its all said and done.
If anyone knows what more we can do, i'd appreciate it greatly.
