    I found a lump on my buck's bottom jaw this morning.
    Vet can't come out till monday.
    Trying not to get to worried.
    He is only 2 years old. He is a great buck. I bottle fed him from the day he was born. He's my big baby.

    I hope it turns out to be nothing. The vet came out because of a lump on the jaw of a friends' goat. I helped hold him and the vet lanced it spraying goo about 10 feet. He said it was just an abcess and that goats sometimes get them. Hopefully it is something similar with an easy fix! Let us know!

    Could be:
    Tooth abscess
    Cud in the cheek
    Sticker abscess
    Salivary gland
    Bee sting
    Worse case, depending where on the jaw could be CL

    Without a pic it is hard to say.

    But glad a vet is going to look at it.
