    I noticed last night that my wether has a lump on his jaw. It's about the size of a quarter, hard, not hot, doesn't seem to be painful. I'm thinking it's probably not CL, judging by the placement and the fact that I've had all of my goats for at least a year and none of them have shown outward...

    So my older mustang has been limping on and off for a bit. At first I suspected a simple injury like a sprain or strain, but when it didn’t heal on it’s own (well, at first it seemed to, but then he started limping again several days later) I suspected a laminitis flare up, as he tends to get...

    After researching and reading many articles, I lanced a big abscess on my goat today. The pus was very greyish and tann colored watery discharge followed by white thick discharge. I drained until no pus came out and washed it out with Iodine. I thought the skin that was bulging out would...

    A few weeks ago our goat was attacked by 2 huskies. She had a pretty bad gash under her belly and a few puncture wounds. After the attack we started her on 3ccs of penicillin daily and cleaned her wounds twice daily with chlorhexadine. Everything started healing great. However, yesterday we...

    We got this buck about a month ago to breed for this season. I was told he was recently vaccinated. Today I noticed this abscess on his face and am very worried it might be CL and we just ruined our whole herd. He was rough-housing with our whether a lot yesterday and could have taken a horn to...

    (sorry for the graphic image, it's quite gross) Our two kids (2 months old) have frequent abscesses near their anus. Today, after the abscess growing to about the size of a strawberry, it popped and we squeezed the rest of the pus out. Any information on what this could be? We are quite...

    Well, following up on one of my previous posts, we had a little one who had a massive lump that turned into two lumps (in one?). We rushed him to the vet and the vet lanced the two lumps, freeing a rather large amount of pus that had no foul odor. The vet had us isolate the mother, the little...

    I shot a video of my 2yr alpine doe who about a week ago suddenly developed an abscess or cyst on her right cheek on the jaw directly under her ear about the size of a golf ball. What is the next step I should take to ascertain what it is? Vet? Cull? We were trying to breed her to my Nubian...

    I have a 3 month old boar who got her mouth slammed in my car door a few weeks ago. She lost one incisor (on the right side) and the tooth next to it got slightly displaced. Her eating and energy are just fine and I check her teeth regularly.... just in case. Today I noticed a greenish...
