My 3 month old doeling has a had lump on her jaw for a couple of weeks now. When I first noticed it, it was very hard and the size of a nickel. I had called the vet and was told be to ‘wait it out’. I don’t believe it’s cl because it’s not located on a lymph node but now 2 weeks later it’s increased in size! I’ve checked in her mouth to see if something was stuck in her mouth but I didn’t see anything and when I press on it it’s still hard in the center but soft around it. Any ideas on what to do??

I've noticed on my sheep and goats, if they run out of salt/mineral some of them develop a lump in the jaw. Not all of them. I try to refresh minerals once a week, but if I forget, they'll get the lump start to develop.

Not saying that's what's going on, just my experience.
