Aborted fawns

One of my does aborted yesterday, she was due in about 5 weeks. I needed to put her down 3 days ago to treat her for pneumonia. I darted her with 1 cc telazol, Then gave her 2 ccs of draxxin and 1 cc of dexamethasone. Does anyone think any of this could have caused her to abort. I was told by another deer farmer that this should be ok.

Was that a telazol mix with rumpum or straight Telazol? Sedation is hard on fetuses and may cause them to die.

Probably more related to the pneumonia than anything else. I have darted/injected pregnant does with the same drugs multiple times, as late as April 20th, with no ill effects.

I would not knock the down just to treat for that. Couple darts would have done the trick if needed. Dex and stress will kill em Quick!

Draxxin is about the easiest med to dart so I would skip the knocking down for that. I hate running my deer through the chute even when they are pregnant, but you got to do what you have to do.

Dex is what caused the abortion.
