Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your lass today.
Now it goes without saying that if we have an inappropriately lactating doe, we need to ensure that no other goats/kids/people or even herself are stimulating or milking the teats. When this is done it can trigger further milk production and continue to the cycle. Otherwise, in regards ***** ***** question, you can contact your vet about treatment with Cabergoline. They will likely need to order it in, as it is not used commonly but it is an effective drug for blocking the hormone prolactin (which is key for milk production).
I hope this information is helpful.
If you need any additional information, do not hesitate to ask!
All the best,
Dr. B.
