    :GAAH: I've been feeding my pygmy goat alfalfa pellets everyday,she's due to kid this month,I noticed a big lump on her right side of her neck,she has CL and I check her everyday for any lumps,this happened within two days..she drank some water,but seems off.

    That does not look like CL....if its under her chin, could be bottle jaw..its hard to tell on the pic its actual location...check her lower inner eye lids for color..you want a deep pink to red color...take her temp..101.5-103.5 is normal range...
    is she eating ok? Pooping berries? peeing?

    Could be a abcess……..have you noticed any cuts or broken skin in the area ? You might want to shave the area so you get a better look at it.
    Maybe a tooth abcess…..?
