I was just wondering how many of you have had to have a section done on one of your goats and what were the results. I read Sandy's story and it seems the babies lived, but the mama died. I have the opposite. THe baby died, I believe that the anesthesia did it in because it was alive just before he put the mama under. Mama however, lived and did just fine. I was noticing on the pictures of Sandy's that it appeared the incision was made in the goats flank. My doe had an abdominal incision, like dogs have done. The vet I had to use was not my first choice. I am thankful that he saved the doe, but I believe the doeling could have been saved too if the vet had been more of a goat vet. I would like to hear other's stories. So far from my goat buddies around here, it usually does not end up with live mama and babies, I wonder why? Dalice
