Here are a couple of pictures of my 4 week old buckling. He's had this for a few weeks now. Is it harmless or should I have it drained?
That's great to hear, I really doubt it's CL, with his age and everything but sounds like you need a good cup of tea and a negative CL test for your mind to relax.It is located at the base of the wattle... sorry the pictures aren't that good but I didn't have anyone to hold him for me while I snapped pics. I'm still pretty much a newbie of a little over 2 years with goats... but someone saw him yesterday that said she had 16 yrs with goats and she hadn't ever heard of a wattle cyst... so I got to worrying again (lately my favorite past time! I've come to the conclusion that owning goats is very stressful!!! lol)
What happened with your goat?? Was it cl or a wattle cyst?Here are a couple of pictures of my 4 week old buckling. He's had this for a few weeks now. Is it harmless or should I have it drained?
It was a wattle cyst.... I took him to the vet, he stuck a needle in it and clear fluid shot out. NOT CL! It looked like it was filling back up shortly after again. I had to sell some of my goats last year so he was sold not long after. I still wonder how they are doing... guess I always will!What happened with your goat?? Was it cl or a wattle cyst?
Mine has the very same thing and I'm so worried waiting for the test results.
