In addition to our rought start with pink eye, possible CL scare (negative), tapeworms/anemia death, bottle jaw, diarrhea, dehydration, pneumonia....we now have (drum roll) SORE MOUTH! I'm pretty sure it came in with the doe who had bottle jaw because I noticed when she came home her lips looked a bit wrinkled and dry but no scabs. She was clean when she came out of solitary. But, the two boer/kiko doelings she shares a feeding trough (not intentional but she works her way in) with both got pinkish looking lips so I locked them up three days ago "just in case". One developed full blown scabs all the way around yesterday. We bleached everything: feed dishes, water trough, walls of the shelter where they sleep, and burned all old bedding. The other still has pink and irritated lips but no scabs and it looks like it's clearing up. I've been using the epsom salt/warm water mouth dip and have been applying caramex twice daily. It's healing up nicely on the one with actual crusting and gloved up myself always. So, should I vaccinate the rest of the herd now or cross my fingers and hope nobody else has picked it up? So far everybody else is good and no temps to the two "sick" girls. They are eating/drinking well. No scabs dropped in the pasture because we caught it quickly (knock, knock, knock). I guess it's possibly thorn irritation becaue we have lots of wild rasberries in the pasture, but it wouldn't account for all the way around the lips and looks like a mild case of sore mouth from the pics I've seen. I'm about to make a list of what I haven't experienced yet with our herd and go out to buy all the remedies for it. :hair: Much thanks again to the wormy boer breeder. :wink: Any suggestions on the vaccine if everybody else stays clean for the next week?
