Default My goat's Face is swollen! help!!

I went outside to give them fresh water and food, and my little alpine doe's cheeks were swollen! she doesn't want me to touch it,and they didn't get into any food they shouldn't have. They had thier 7-way booster yesterday and thier coccidiosis prevention. What is it? P.S. I can't post pics on this

Check all around her face for any puncture wounds. I would give her Benadryl anyway just in case ASAP.

6-8cc's depending on how big your goat is. Check alll over her head for any time of puncture, or sting. Doesn't matter if she doesn't want you touching it, do it anyway, she'll thank you in the end.

Thanks Stacey, I wasn't really thinking about that because I always forget their cheeks swell too.

thats bottle jaw its from the barberpole worm. The swelling may go down by morning and then come back by the evening.

I recommend you worm her and you give iron shots or redcell for the anemia
