Sorry I didn’t get to you sooner, but I just got in for the day and saw your question.
I’d be a bit concerned about your doe as well! If I read it correctly, she is 9&1/2 months of age? That is way too young to be pregnant, as far as growth development, but not physiologically. Has she been exposed to a buck? If so, do you know how long ago?
Normally, when a doe goes into heat, you may see a whitish discharge from the vulva (it can resemble pus). They can also (depending on the doe) become very vocal, seeming to bawl a lot. There isn’t normally any change in the udder, but you may see a slight softening of the vulva region. Those are really the only ways one can tell, unless she were to be vaginally ultra-sounded and her ovaries were examined. If you do suspect that she might be pregnant, there are several options available to determine that. One, a Vet can ultrasound her abdominally outside, or a blood test can be sent in to determine pregnancy. Secondly, seeing that you’re a nurse, have you ever drawn blood on a goat? If you are familiar and comfortable with the procedure, that is something you can do yourself and I can recommend a lab to send the sample to. But if there is a question at all, I would definitely check for pregnancy! Depending on how far along she may be, the pregnancy can be terminated if she is only a few weeks. Otherwise, it’s not recommended.
I’m looking forward to your reply.
All the best,
