Myotonic and Nigerian dwarf goats
So I know that knots usually form after Cdt, but are the normal painful? A few of my goats developed big painful knots after their cdt booster.
I'm not sure about how large or small the size of the knots can be. That does sound big. I have read that jiggling the tent of skin before letting it go, after the vaccination, helps spread the medicine around and makes the lump smaller. Sorry your goats are going through a rough time with the vaccination site.Is it normal for it to be a fist sized bump though?
Going by fruit size, I’d say it’s about a big strawberry 😂how big is your fist? lol
mine had a bump about the size of a medium size strawberry
I did end up using a needle on one that was soft and a decent size, I got most of the pus out too, should I give the goat la200 to fight off infection or just wait and give her some vitamin B complex paste and some pro bios?Some can get pretty big, depending on the reaction.
When they are ripe(soft) you can either try to squeeze it or lance it and flush it out.
(Bump, sorry just wanting to get this question answered since I’m going to TSC today and can get saline 😉)I did end up using a needle on one that was soft and a decent size, I got most of the pus out too, should I give the goat la200 to fight off infection or just wait and give her some vitamin B complex paste and some pro bios?
Edit: I don’t have any saline solution but I’m sure I could run and get some, I used a smaller needle to pop it then squeezed the pus, pus was a yellow color and has some chunks in it (🤢) How would I flush it out? Do I just inject saline into it ? Also just to note, this was the cdt injection site, def not CL i Also wrote down injection sites for everyone thankfully 😉 I mashed until it was just blood coming out, and no more puss was coming out.
Alrighty! Thanks 😊 I’ll keep some antibiotic spray on it and squeeze it every now and then to make sure any new pus it gone!If you just drew the pus out with a syringe there isn’t really any way to flush it. What I do is get a scalpel and poke a little hole and push all that crap out. I usually don’t flush it (except for the one I DID have a fist sized lump) but the hole gives a good size spot to get it all out.
I have never done any antibiotics, for the most part the infection is walled off in that small spot and getting the stuff out usually resolves the issue.
