    Hi everyone. So I’ve already had the vet to him and she gave me injections and also a spray, which I’ve been spraying on the infected area daily, but she couldn’t tell me what it was, though she suspected an infection or dermatitis. Has anyone seen anything like this before? I honestly don’t...

    Hi so my husband recently rescued a female goat. She was pregnant and gave birth to two babies. Her condition is very questionable considering I have very little education on goats. It looks like she hasn’t been milked for months or a long time. What happens if a goat doesn’t get milked? It...

    I'm hoping someone can give me some advise. I have a female goat that has not had a baby for many years. She is at least 10 years old. In the spring I noticed that she had lost a lot of weight and after further observation, found that she had a hole in her udder. Her udder was also very hard...

    I work on a farm and recently noticed that a 13 year old doe's udder has swollen up. I milked her to see what would come out and a yellow liquid with spots of blood and chunks of white came out. Her udder was also very warm so I'm worried that it's infected. Large amounts of the yellow liquid...

    My vet never answers his voicemail, and I have just determined that my doe has some foul smelling discharge. She lost her mucus plug three weeks ago, and we don't exactly know her due date as she and the buck were running together when we got her. She is a 5 year old rescue goat and is getting...
