    There was a post last week on here about some pustual sores around the rectum of a goat. I know Stacey had posted a picture of a really bad one and asked if that was what it looked like.

    I would really like to take a look at that post because I noticed one of my wethers has a couple sores on the underside of his tail and also an issue on the side of his face that he obviously has been rubbing at.

    Thanks

    I don't think it was sore mouth, as the one on the face is by the bottom jaw line where the lower jaw connects to the skull. Also the other is on the tail. For some reason staph infection comes to mind.

    everyone said Mason had sore mouth but NO One else or even his mom ever got it.

    I think it is genetics related as his brother the year before had the same thing. Pops up at 2 weeks of age over night.

    Staph infection is an idea for your goats
