Eve and Edna

I'm happy to report that little Eve is doing great and acting like a typical cria, exploring her world and trying out those long legs of hers.

On the other hand, Edna has become ill. I noticed her lying on her side and groaning when she was urinating. She had an elevated temperature. By the time the vet got here today, she had some nasty vaginal discharge. So, even though we had been treating her with penecillin, it had not done the job. So, she is getting an antibiotic twice a day, some banamine (animal aspirin), and possibly some oxytocin to help her uterus regain it's shape and expel the nasty stuff.
I'm glad we know what is going on now, and she will feel better soon and be more accepting of a lively, demanding baby.


  1. I am so glad to hear that Eve is doing well. I hope that you have got Edna Mae on the mend as well. Keep up updated over on the Fiber blog. I sometimes forget to read this one.

  2. I feel a lot better about Eve but will continue to worry about Edna Mae. Thanks for posting this update.

  3. Thanks for the update, happy little Eve has bounced back, now we concentrate on Edna Mae. Lets hope the medicine and your TLC will bring her through this tough time. Was this her first cria?

  4. Well, this answers my question on your other blog!!! Maybe Edna Mae is a good mom after all, she just didn't feel good - childbirth and its after effects are no picnic!!!
