Have you contacted anybody in your area? Try the goatworld.911 listing for somebody in your area. There is a rash of pnemonia related things going on in our area that will kill your kids quickly. From a doe kid not taking her bottle at my friends last night, she was dead in 4 hours. Mycoplsam in north Texas. Pnemonia in Ohio. Cocci and worms along with fireant deaths in Houston from the flooding. Everything and everyone needs a tetanus booster. Your vet or extension agent or better yet a local breeder is your best bet when you have troubles like this. Go to and read everything in the serious goat stuff. Selenium is passed from Mom to kids but not the E that activates it. If she has inadequate colostrum for her kids than they could have white muscle or nutritional muscular destrophy from not enough E to activate the selenium. They only get E from colostrum. Snip E capsules from wallmart and squish the E into the mouth, Nutra Drench does contain E but use enough for 300IU daily. Bo-se contains enough selenium but very little E. Taste the dams milk and check that she doesn't have mastitis which will also make her kids fail to thrive. Perhaps relisting all the stuff you have done and what has happened? Vicki
