    This was sent to me by a new member in a pm. So just posting it here for them helps.


    Never-bred Kiko/boer cross with lumpy enlarged right udder. Came up kind of suddenly. I Noticed it a couple months ago. But it never grew and everything I read said to watch it. She didn’t seem bothered by it at all until today. She didn’t want me to touch it. Her teat is now harder and warm. What could this be?

    Temp? Has she milker her?

    If she’s worried about it, check the milk. Precocious milkers can certainly get mastitis.

    Probably mastitis. You may want to get a vet involved.

    Be gentle..skin can be very tender. Warm compress and an udder balm can help..let the group know what you find..clean milk or blood, pus, flaking etc..

    Do not forget to get a temp on her please. Goats usually run 102.5-103.5 so do not freak out when it is that. ;)
