    I think my pregnant doe is going to give birth today and I just noticed a small, lump on her udder. Can someone tell me if this is normal? (Sorry for the bad photo)

    Looks like she may have a congested udder. Possibly mastitis, although I suspect the former. Once she gives birth, massage, warm compresses and milk her out to check her milk and make sure it is flowing well. Don't let babies nurse if she is mastitic on that side. Do you know if she is CAE negative?

    Thank you so much for your advice! I was getting worried. I think she has been tested for CAE.

    Good news! She had triplets yesterday evening and her udder looks fine now.
    Thank you again, goatblessings!
