I have a baby boy goat 5 months with what looks like some sort of growth near his eye, it feels like a scab but looks like a callous :confused::confused:: there is also one under this eye and on the other side of his face... I just dont know.. the one on top of his eye is growing starting to close his eye... it doesnt seem to bother him. everything else looks healthy. please help thank you!

I don't think it looks like Ring worm at all, more like a wart. I too would get them to a vet just to be sure.

Goathiker suggested it was Papilloma and to get the goat to a vet for testing. This was on the other thread that the growth looks like these.

So I just had our Vet out and he said it is Ringworm!! Good guess guys! He said sometimes baby goats get it because their immune system is not mature yet.. And just leave it,it will run its course, or if I want to put an anti fungal cream on it I could.. Thank you :)

Yes he did tell me, that's why I am a bit reluctant to put the anti fungal cream on him.... I guess I could wear gloves.. We always wash good after touching the goats... Thank you

I would have a scrape test done for mites as well, but I'm swaying towards papilloma. Warts.
