So sorry you and your doe are going through this. I can understand how helpless and upsetting this must make you feel.

What does the vet suggest at this point? Surely they are following up with you? If you haven't talked to them since she delivered the DOA this morning, I think you should call them immediately, before they close for the day.

The only thing I know that may help is to feed her lavender buds. They are believed to help expel the contents of the uterus.

don't know where you live, but-in addition to what Maggie said- I also feed raspberry leaf, and garlic at times like this...
meat-mutt rabbits, a few laying hens.
