FARM ANIMAL HOSPITAL TEAM IS
by Abbi Gardner
When a beloved Nigerian Dwarf dairy goat named Pig was having difficulty delivering her two kids, the Auburn Vet Med Farm Animal Hospital team stepped in to save the day. This was Pig’s first pregnancy and everything had been going smoothly until it came time for her to give birth. Pig’s owner, Jena Middleton, began to notice that she was not progressing the way her other goats had in the past. Middleton realized that both Pig and her kids’ lives were in jeopardy, so she made the critical decision to bring Pig to the Large Animal Hospital for treatment. The team performed an emergency C-section and safely delivered Pig’s two kids. Pig and her kids, who were appropriately named Bacon Bits and Pork Rind, are happy and healthy.
I am forever grateful to the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine — the students, staff and doctors. They are hands-down the most pleasant, knowledgeable, caring and best group of folks I have ever met. They gave my goat, Pig, the best care imaginable and sent me home with three blessings.”
