Howdy all! Been gone a while! I have an amazing 4 year-old doe that recovered from an intense bout with septic mastitis 2 months ago that left the infected half of her udder scarred and drawn up. At least she's still with us! It's strange though . . . as soon as her udder recovered she developed a limp in her left foreleg and I cannot figure out what is wrong!! :hair: I thought it would go away with time since she does have CAE and I thought it was acting up because of the stress of her illness. But it's been 2 months now and it looks so painful! I've seen the "big knee" mastitis that is characteristic of a CAE infection and this doesn't really look like that. It's as if she is walking on the tips of her hooves on that leg. It's like she's walking on tiptoes . . . what does that mean? :scratch: I've trimmed her hooves looking for thorns or infection and they are fine! I've felt the joints of her knee, fetlock, and pastern in that leg and there is no heat or swelling. The only thing I've noticed is that there is audible crepitation (snap-crackle-pop) in her joints when she walks. I wish I could treat her pain, but she is a dairy goat and we cannot give her pain meds while we are selling her milk. I would appreciate any suggestions that people may have.
