    Tonights milking shows some blood from one side. I noticed a small clot and the final milk had a pink tint. I milk with a cloth diaper over the pail and and could tell that the other side was normal. This was the second milking of the day.. She is a Lmancha and milks quite easily. She is new to me and there is no history available. I do not know when she freshened or if she is currently bred. I see no signs of mastitis and have only had her for one week. Hopefully, this is a one time thing, but if not I certainly want to treat her. Any experience on this?

    Try vitamin C in high doses 10-20 grams to start. That should clear it up. I'd also give dolomite if you can find some.
