She's running a bit of a fever. Earlier noticed her temp was up and breathing was a little hard so gave her a shot of Draxxin. Went down to pick her up later and let the kids drink and her temp was 104.8, we stood her up and let her breathe some fresh, colder air; checked her temp and it's down to 103.9

I'm not sure if it's coincidence or if the sitting down is elevating her temperature. She's still alert and eating.

Wow... so stressful.

Are the kids still good?

Can't remember, do you have another doe in milk? Or just her?

The kids are still good and happy. They drink well and one of them will cry if he can't get the teat after trying for a while... mama's teats are a little too big to fit in their tiny mouths easily. They've started exploring and jumping about. She's the only one in milk; the next two are only due in a month.

Hoping and praying she will be fine.

Her temp is down to 102.7, which is good. Her breathing is still not as good as I would like it and she seems to be peeing less often than before although she is drinking water. She hunches every now and then.

Hummmmm can you put a bit of sugar into the water to tempt Her to drink more?

How is she doing this week?
Much better! She is peeing without falling and actually got up by herself a few days ago to give milk to her kids. She’s still dragging that back foot though so not sure if it’s something that is permanent or will go away with time.

Her poop is still fluctuating between clumpy and nice berries
