Since then he has had a persistent fever (treated with banamine) and drainage (treated with quartermaster) from the incision site.

    Hi again. My doe Willow kidded 2 days ago. Triplets, but 2 stillborn. She had a rough time. I rushed off after the birth to care for the remaining kid witch she rejected, and didn't see if she got the afterbirth out. The day after, yesterday, she was very swollen, looks like she may have torn...

    So this morning I went out to check the girls and noticed that one of my younger ones had something wrong with her eye. She kept it closed and when she opened it, I noticed a bit of swelling. Thankfully I think I’ve caught it early. I used some eye drops to flush it out and then put a little eye...

    My doe is currently going through her first lactation and nursing two, healthy, 10 week old kids. I went away for 2 days and on returning noticed she had a lesion and a swollen lump high up on the middle of her udder, not near the teats. The kids are nursing from both sides okay and she's not...

    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...

    Hi All! I have been struggling with this off and on for years now, and it's out of control this time. I have a 10 year old nubian doe, Louise. I've only bred her twice. It's been almost 5 years since the last time she was bred. Last month one side of her udder started filling up. I milked out a...

    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...

    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...
