Just noticed on one of our newish does (acquired over a month ago) that she has a dry chapped and scabby feel to her udder. Managed to get her to lay down on her side for a couple seconds to see that her underbelly in front of her udder is scabby and sore looking and some of the wounds are open!
I'm not sure how to go forward with this. A topical ointment would be good right? Is there anything to keep the flies away that wont irritate the wounds? Should I be giving her any antibiotics for an infection???
