    Help! I’m a fairly new goat owner. I have a buckling that is 2 months old and I just noticed a small soft mass on his side by his rib cage. It is mobile and he doesn’t seem bothered by me palpating it.. it’s about the size of a large grape... is this something I should be concerned about??? Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks

    Did he get a shot in that spot?

    I’m glad you asked that... I think that that might be where he got his CDT... it’s been about 5 days though... is that normal?

    Probably an injection abscess. Keep an eye on it.
