    Sybil has a lump in the general spot we gave her CDT about 8 months ago. I have to admit that I haven't had my hands on her that much lately because of life being nuts. She did have a knot after her CDT but I was sure it had gone away.
    Today, when I was trimming her hoofs I gave her a good look over and I found this (pic below) looks like it's white-ish, it's hairless and fairly hard and moves with her skin.
    What do y'all think?

    Is this a CL area?

    Some CDT lumps never go away.

    I'd have a vet come, stick a needle in it, draw out the pus and have it tested for CL. (if there is pus). But before then, you could try to give benadryl and see if it goes away (if it were a bite etc.)

    I'm going to have to take her in, my vets are a clinic mainly, they won't come out for one goat. I can't chance having a CL+ goat here with all the babies. It's just weird we've had her since last Halloween and never seen anything on her. The herd she came from is clean too so I'm hoping I'm over reacting.

    [​IMG]The area in the armpit is not a CL location.

    If you know you gave the vaccine in that spot, I would not worry.

    Some just don't go away from years before.

    Well, we took Sybil to the vet just in case it was something to worry about....(we left before @toth boer goats posted ..thank you Pam! I wouldn't have worried if I had seen it first)

    GREAT NEWS! It was just a sebaceous cyst luckily. A quick lance and drain, shot of Nuflor and we headed home.

    PHEW! Crisis averted :). Sybil will be getting bred along with Fleur soon since neither kidded last year.

    Hmm my bad. Every reference I've seen lists that as a *possible* spot.

    I know, it is crazy, it is not a lymph node area, that is why most breeders give it in the armpit area, so we know it is not CL.
    Whoever made up this location, is way off IMO.

    That's what my vet said when I started doing my own vaccinations. He told me that, It's an easy place to tent and there's nothing that you can really hit to hurt them. (I.e. Arteries, veins, major muscles etc.) I just worried because it was new and there's been so many CL scares lately I wanted to get it checked. Sometimes too much information is as bad as too little like in this case ...Better safe than sorry!
