I noticed yesterday that one of my does had a lopsided udder so I examined her and the one side was very swollen, hot to the touch and very hard feeling. My first thought was mastitis but I have never seen it so I called my friend who has worked on a dairy farm to come over and check her. We do not think she has mastitis yet. We do think that she either got stepped on or horned in the udder because there was a big bloody scrape on it. We milked out what we could and started her on penicillin. I also gave her some baby aspirin. Her milk is still good and doesn't have any blood or clumps in it. I gave it to the barn cats and they ate it. This morning I did the same thing and turned her out. Her kids will nurse on the good side but won't touch the hard side. Is there anything else that I should be doing to keep it from turning into mastitis? It takes a long time to milk it out enough that it isn't hard and I thought there is a device that you can insert into the udder to drain the milk out fast but don't know what it is called.
