I have a 3 year old lactating Saanen doe, who became ill today. When I went out this morning to feed, she was laying outside, shivering, and reluctant about getting up. When I got her on her feet, I noticed that she was having greenish, ploppy diarrhea, and did not eat when I put hay out. I am not seeing any cud chewing, though she is sometimes belching without producing cud. She is staring off into space, and has a sub-normal rectal temperature reading of 100.5. What might this be? I have administered baking soda and colloidal silver in a large dose. She seemed to improve slightly, and became interested in her kid for awhile, but now seems to be drooping again.
 
They gave me pumpkin ice cream. It was not pumpkin pie ice cream. Wiping my tongue on this tiny ad:
