A pet goat attracted attention in Palmas after having a different pregnancy and gives birth to three cubs. Maria Quitéria is a dairy goat of the Saanen breed and has always been raised as a pet. The cesarean delivery was performed in a university operating room with the help of veterinary medicine students.

It is common for goats to have two babies per pregnancy. The three puppies were born healthy and drawing attention for their excess of cuteness. The triplets are only two days old and were baptized by the students as Melissa, João and Joaquim. (See the video)

In order for all the animals to be well, the goat underwent a thorough follow-up. There were three weeks of hospitalization and a treatment that included ultrasound and monitoring of heartbeats. Veterinary medicine students took turns and slept at the university hospital so that the follow-up would not be interrupted.

Surgery during childbirth was necessary because Maria Quitéria was diagnosed with uterine prolapse. “When she arrived here she had the beginning of the vaginal prolapse and that was practically 20 days before the expected date of delivery. She had a follow-up until the fetuses were in an ideal condition to be born to perform the procedure”, explained veterinarian Eudes Castro.

The goat’s owners sought professional help when they realized that the animal was not well. “She started with panting and I started to observe and monitor”, said Aldemir Barbosa.

After the diagnosis, Quitéria was hospitalized for three weeks, until the puppies were born. During treatment, the need for cesarean delivery was even informed. “Complications are linked to the issue of infection, hemorrhage and even the issue of the female trying to give birth and the fetuses not being able to leave because it obstructs the passage and there will be a complication for the female, which will end up killing her and the pups” , he explained.

One of the puppies had to go to the incubator, but has since been released. Now the mother recovers by assisting and nursing the pups. Now the attention of the animals is also shared among the students. “The feeling remains. We get very attached. It seems like a short time, but you are there daily taking care of it. It’s a life and we care”, said student Érica Francisca Silvestre.

Tutors celebrate the result of so much concern and care. “I was very pleased with the attention that Maria Quitéria had with the puppies. It was wonderful”, praised the tutor.

They are delighted with Maria, who is a sweetheart, and now with the triplets. Saying you have to leave it here [no hospital veterinário], if you can make a donation. Very good to know that they had a great attachment to her and the puppies”, said public servant Sandra Marinho.
