Rest of the udder is fine...don't think it is mastitis.She was VERY upset with this new doe in her surroundings and she is normally such a gentle goat-didn't know she had it in her to be so bitchy (sorry but best word to explain her behaviour).

Another thing that I must mention is that I weaned her babies also on Saturday...is there a specific test for mastitis?

Watch for purple teat, followed by a blister, followed by peeling. Start putting udder balm on her at the end of milking. Make sure she lets her milk down and keep the pressure off her. Actually increasing milking, say 3-4x a day until better.

Mix up:
Udder balm or coconut oil
Vitamin E gel tablet (just the gel)
Nolvasan sanitizing solution (helps dry and kill bacteria)

Keep a close eye on the teat end.
