But, one tender spot I found was a swollen bump just below her knee joint, the rest...

    I'm far from a goat expert, I keep a few as a hobby. I have a pygmy/lamancha mix that is about 5 months old. When he was young he had a poor disbudding job therefore grew scurs. One scur was weak and flimsy, and now it's falling off? It's bloody underneath. I don't know what to do. I read to...
