A Trip To The Vet

Lil Vicki had to get one last snack before going inside to get Olivia's staples removed. Lil Vicki wanted to dress up for Dr Ast because she saved her life. Dr. Ast calls Lil Vicki a miracle as she was found sitting in the middle of intestines when they did the C section on Olivia. Everyone was shocked she was alive. Olivia stood still and did really well while they removed the staples. Everything looked good and healing nicely. She does have a urinary track infection so is back on antibiotics  and mild pain meds  for 10 days. Was hoping to get a clean bill of health and be finished with Vet visits for a long time but glad they caught the infection and we are able to give her the shots here at home. Lil Vicki won the heart of all the staff and had to make the rounds of the whole hospital before we left. Am proud to say she was on her best behavior.

Dr Ast with her favorite patients. She is a very caring, gentle, and kind Vet. She has such patience with animals and they seem to sense that and trust her. Olivia stood perfectly still while Dr Ast examined her. She did twitch a little when they removed the staples but didn't try to run or get away.

Staples are out. Exam over. Shots given. Pictures taken. Baby back with Momma. Olivia says its time to go home.

Poor babies. I'm glad all is well now. Mommy goat looks so cute with her little patchwork--it's almost shaped like Ohio, LOL!
There's this show called "Too Cute" on Animal Planet. They need to do one with baby goats!

Sheesh, I didn't realize I was this behind with your posts! About time I come visit:-) I've just read about Olivia and Lil Vicki...what a blessing that Olivia is recovering well and that the baby is doing fine as well!!! I had never seen where a c-section was done on a goat so it was quite interesting to see it in the picture. No doubt Olivia is happy to have those staples out! Ouch!!

Love ya sis xoxo
