I noticed last night that my wether has a lump on his jaw. It's about the size of a quarter, hard, not hot, doesn't seem to be painful. I'm thinking it's probably not CL, judging by the placement and the fact that I've had all of my goats for at least a year and none of them have shown outward signs of being infected with CL. Any input into what this might be? The wether seems perky and is acting normal. I haven't noticed any cuts, bites, etc. that could have caused this. My mom did look inside his mouth as I held him, and thought she might have seen a white spot, like a big one of those mouth sores that humans can get, on the inside of his mouth, corresponding to the spot where the lump would be. I wonder if he maybe bit himself or ate something sharp, like a thorn? Don't think it's bottlejaw, as he does not look anemic. I am taking him into the vet, just to be safe, but Saturday is the soonest I can get in. I was planning to do biosecurity testing soon, anyway, so I'll have the vet do the blood draws for him and his pasture mate on Saturday for CAE/CL/Johnes tests. My vet uses Sage Labs for their testing. Is that a good lab? I'd love any input on what this could be, and if anyone with more experience has reason to believe that it could be CL, after all. I'm practicing sanitation measures, thorough hand washing, changing shoes after going in his pen, just to be on the safe side.
