Kidding, especially a hard one, can make CAE sysmptoms much more severe. This is often when a goat who is CAE positive becomes symptomatic. You may want to treat for ketosis and give calcium too (CMPK gel or liquid will do both). She may have a touch of hypocalcemia (ketosis, milk fever) Also giving some pain relief may help put her back on feed. Use banamine if you have it, give 1 cc per 100 pounds once a day or give Liquid Children's Motrin at 1 cc per 10 pounds every 6 hours or so. Warm compresses will make her udder feel better. The dose for LA 200 is 1 cc per 30 pounds. Give half the horse dose of the Redcell, some of those vitamins can be overdosed. Give a probiotic, I bet her digestive microbes have taken a big hit from the stress and being off feed.

I have a doe that just kidded last sunday. I know she is CAE positive, I took the kids and made sure they didn't get infected. Since the birth, which was a difficult on, she has been off feed, only eating her warm water and beet pulp mixture, she is drinking plenty of water. She has the hard udder associated with CAE. I have been using teat infusion and it is helping soften her udder. I have also been giving 6 cc of LA200 and 40-50cc of red cell. Today I went out to check on her and she is lame in her right front knee. She has had some swelling in her knees from the CAE for awhile but never so much so that she can't put weight on it. My questions are could this be ketosis? Is the CAE the problem? If so what should I do? She has been wormed correctly with ivomec. I am just so worn out and don't know what else I need to be doing. We DO NOT have a good goat vet here.
