The amniotic fluid is obtained from all goats, by aspiration, and samples will be evaluated by cytology test, Clements and body count lamenares. Blood samples shall be taken of kids at birth, at the age of 15 and 60 minutes, as well as the 24 and 48 hours, aiming at determining the globular volume (VG), hemoglobin (Hb), as also of the variables hemogasométricas and glucose levels and serum lactate. It will be observed at the same time, the pattern of pulmonary radiological goats born at term and premature neonates from goats subjected or not to corticoideterapia two days before the scheduled date of calving.
