    Thanks - I haven't shown her, but I had planned on having her LA'ed this spring - ugh! I think that will never happen now.

    I would leave the scab alone. I imagine it will come off on it's own pretty soon. I'm amazed at the improvement every time you post. Good job!! I bet once it heals she will do well in her LA.

    Okay. The only reason I even considered removing the scab was due to a dog attack on a doe I had last year and by leaving the scab on, the vet said it made the whole area worse because I could not clean it properly and once he did a debridement. . .it healed well . . .though I know this isn't that type of thing, and I think I will leave it alone until it comes mostly loose on it's own.

    Her progress is great. But how are you able to milk her in that condition? Or did I misunderstand? I'd like to know in case something like that ever happens.

    We milk as usual, except we cover in lanolin to prevent abrasion and wear surgical gloves. . .it doesn't seem to bother her much anymore.

    I add photos tonight - it looks much better today

    There's a Before and After topic from a while back. It would be neat to put a before the healing and after the healing pic on there.

    Now it is easy to tell what a scab has formed -

    I think this is day ten

    Here are the 1st and 3rd day photo to compare how far she has come so far:
