Our miniature goat has had two still born goats today and one alive which is still ok. I feel there is more goats inside, would this be possible and if so what should i do? Thank you.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the goat?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

So has she had triplets so far?

Do they look quite small or are they large kinds?

How long ago was the last kid delivered?

Does mum appear to still be straining?
