CIDR Trouble

This is a CIDR. It is a hormone suppository that goes in a doe's you-know-what to bring her into heat. Inserting it isn't my favorite thing to do. Inserting it three times into the same doe is really, really not my favorite thing to do.

Somehow, each of the past two nights, Onxy (or one of her sisters) has pulled Onyx's CIDR out. This time, I cut the little knob off the end of the string in hopes they won't be able to grab ahold of it. She is wise to me now and bucks like a bronco whenever I get near her read end. I really don't want to have to do this to her again until next year!


  1. Not something I'd want to do either. Are you just having trouble getting her bred? I have a friend who has trouble getting his goat bred. I wonder if this would help her?

  2. I just want to make sure that they are in heat and actually get bred when I take them to visit bucks. I have to take Onyx almost 2 hours away and don't particularly want to make the trip twice.

    I feel pretty confident this is something that will help your friend. You use the CIDR for about 2 weeks followed by a 1.5 ml shot of PG 600.
