I have a Nigerian dwarf buck (KitKat)who has a large cyst on his left side near his ribs. Last month he ran into a cattle panel that had a wire sticking out. The cyst is the size of a grape fruit (just noticed it half an hour ago) and he pulled the hair off from it. It is painful to the touch and i tried to feel to see if i could feel intestine or anything. I thought that it would just be filled with pus so i got a small needle (to be careful) to see what was in it. I poked it underneath the skin and tried removing fluid but there was only air. When i took the needle out it bubbled for a split second and bled a little bit. Im going to go and buy a large needle and some other supplies. I dont believe his life is in danger (but it was without me noticing). I cut a 16 footer in half and the exposed part wasnt supposed to be accessible from the goats but he goat out from a gap between two panels. When he saw me he ran back through but got caught on the wire it stopped him for a split second but then he went back in. i have since fixed the problem and I kept an eye on him for a week or two and did not see any visible signs of a wound. He ended up becoming sick for a while but he just recently got better. He didnt eat much and would assert his dominance on the other bucks. I check him physically and he was bloated so i gave him free choice baking soda and changed his feed from alfalfa to orchard grass hay. This is really bad management on my part. I take care of the girls very well and they are very healthy but im ashamed to say that i don't pay that much attention to the buck. He is very low maintenance and does not like me since i always run after him whenever he breaks into the girl's pen. I separated him from everyone else and am making sure he eats and drinks. He is still a little off than how he typically is but a lot better than before. Any tips and suggestions? I plan on relieving the cyst but if it is only filled with air and not puss ill probably bring him to the vet Monday. I have bad experiences with vets. My animals never really needed to visit one expect for one who ended up having a tumor and a puppy who contracted parvo.
