I posted a couple weeks ago about Cowboy leg tangled in rope. Well he seemed to be getting better. Eating drinking back to old self. Was treating wound for infection. Inspected today Think his lower leg done now for lack of better word rotting. Anyone ever dealt with this issue?

Do you mean the skin? Can you have a vet or very experienced goat person look at it? Does he use the leg at all?

Yes the skin kinda of all the sudden started looking bad. Limited use but started putting weight on it last couple days. Then today looks bad. Yes have vet going to call tommorow. Cleaned it up but does not look good. However does not seem to be effecting him. Worried about infection.

Does he have feeling in it ? Does it have a bad smell to it ?
Sounds like he needs some heavy antibiotics to combat infection.
Hope the vet gives good news , goat definitely needs to be seen , IMO.
Keep us posted.
