My Nubian doe is turning 15 in July, but I still want to help however I can. She was completely fine until a couple months ago. She started losing weight around February and I treated extensively for worms in March. We found she had a long, broken molar on the top right so she was set for surgery beginning of April, but she began to lose interest in food and stayed inside the shed. I found she was not lying down so I built a sling for her so she can sleep comfortably under supervision. I found lumps all over her udder along the abdomen. We treated with ToDay for mastitis for 3 days every 12 hours half a tube in each teat and Tomorrow for 3 days every twelve hours half a tube in each teat and another day with a full tube in the left teat which was the worst side (that was all I could get my hands on). Her appetite improved, her behavior improved, the lumps improved dramatically, but she is still not lying down and the lumps are not gone. I haven’t milked out since the last treatment a week ago (she isn’t in production but has a spring udder). Her milk vein is swollen and she likes to rub it on things. I am feeding her as much alfalfa, beat pulp, and grass pellet mush as she can eat with senior horse feed and COB mixed in to try to help her gain weight and make up for the cud she is losing from the broken tooth. Her breath smells sour and bad, especially in the morning. This morning she had diarrhea, but she’s typically had pellets through this. The vet prescribed a daily pain pill/fever reducer meloxicam. I’m worried I’m giving her too much grain, but I’m not sure. I don’t know how to continue treatment for mastitis or if I should. I’m assuming the tooth can’t be taken care of until she’s more stable, but I’m concerned there’s an infection. So how do I continue mastitis care? How do I keep weight on without hurting her rumen and her tooth? What is going on with that breath? Please help.
