You have two threads up. I'm going to combine them to keep things easy for you to follow.
Thank you! Sounds like I need to run around and find some of these things for my goat! I'm hoping the antibiotic I gave her today starts to work fast and then gives me time to find these other supplies, thank you!!!Ok..excede is long acting, one that actually does stay in the system for 4 days. So she should get a second shot in 4 days. If temp stay high after day 2..I would do a different antibiotic.
Chuncks does indicate mastitis. Ypu should test her.. Today Mastitis treatment maybe needed. Infuse half a tub in effected side and massage it upward after milking it down as much as you can. Leave the Today in for 12 hours..milk it all out and repeat. It may take several tubes. Since the tubes are for cows you use half the tube. To be able to use the second half without contamination...get a large new syringe (no needle) and push half the tube in the syringe. Fix the syringe with a cannula to infuse. You dont want to reuse any cannula or used tube. This method will save from having to toss half the tube 😉
There is also a product called Mastoblast. It's very helpful. One other home remedy I use is to feed 30 cc of the milk from infected side (as long as no blood or pus gross stuff) back to the doe a few times. This helps her body detect the bacteria and build antibodies to fight against it. Sounds crazy..but helps.
Use a good balm when working the udder.
Does this does still nurse if she has babies? I'm worried if I don't do enough she won't be able to feed babies againI have mastitis in one doe. She had it last year. I purchased Mastoblast, it didnt do any good. Sorry but I would not recommend that product.
