OK thanks. The vet said 2 cc for our little doe. So I figured 6 cc would be good for Hannah, I didn't want to OD her so I just had to check. She has dry mastitis which she has had since she was a wee little kid and is now almost 2. I am trying pen now because 12 tubes of the cows stuff and 4 powerful shots didn't work. It seems to be helping a tad. Our vet who has is about 50-60 has seen just about everything in the book. But he is completly baffled by my doe. Do any of you know of the best mastitis stuff there is? Would love to know.

If she isn't bred you can try LA 200, it will burn a little bit, they really don't like it but its a very high powered antibiotic and i have seen it do wonders for things like mastitis and hoof rot.
You can also add some vitamin C to her diet, my goats really like the orange flavored tablets.

nupine you need to take a milk sample from the udder and send it in for testing. pennecillin injection isn't doing anything. is this doe tested for cae?
of course if positive, this kind of mastitis is not curable.

This doe has been tested twice, both negative. But she tested positive for mastitis. She has it bad, but the penicillen is helping a little. I heard LA-200 is hardly better than giving a goat water on Fiasco Farms, is that true? I will post pics tonight, it is hard to explain what it looks like, but it is very lopsided.

No LA 200 is extremely strong med so it works great against infections. I don't know why Fiasco Farms says that but I have not found it to be true in my own use of the product.

nupine what kind of bacteria could they grow? they should have given you a treatment recommendation with the result. who did the test?
like i said in earlier post, different strains of bacteria need different treatment.
what kind of bedding do you use? how often do you clean it out?
