Throughout the last few years, I have been traveling 150 miles to Rock Springs, Wyoming to get care for my goats. Dr. Paul Zancanella, and Dr. Schmidt have been a tremendous help to my operation. Large Animal Technician Cheryl Nilson is never too busy to answer a question or send medications when needed. This last week I had my first case of Pregnancy Toxemia. Not knowing how far the doe can go before the point of 'No Return' I loaded her up and away I went for another long trip. By the time I got there O Y Knots Espresso was so far gone, her kidneys were shutting down. We waited a bit to see if she'd come out of it, but she didn't make it. Much to my surprise when we cut her open she had quads. Another first for me. 2 red paint does, 2 traditional bucks. The does were already dead, started to be absorbed, but we still weren't fast enough to save the bucks. Knowing when the doe is past the point of being saved, I won't hesitate next time. Thanks to Mountainaire Animal Clinic and all the people that work there. You're not afraid to try to help someone with a goat. Espresso will be missed very much, she was good producing doe.
