i would caturize (sp) it with a disbuder, if you don't have one I would put blood stop powder on it, I've heard cuyan pepper will stop the blood but have never used it personally.

If she hit her head hard enough to knock the scur off. She probably has a head ache. You can give her some aspirin to help with the pain. Blue-kote or some other type of disinfected spray will help keep flies away and heal faster. Hope she is feeling better soon. Shelly

we also use baking soda to stop blood. When I worked in the veterinary clinics, that is what we would tell clients that would call that had a toe nail bleeding to use.

Also, if you are close to a vet clinic, ask them for Silver Nitrate sticks, it will cauterize the wound...:)

I had something similar happen to one of ours. The vet said to give her a gram of butte (I have horses) and he gave us some yellow antibiotic spray for it. The butte really helped. We gave it to her once a day for three days. Poor girl!

I truly do not understand the pepper suggestions, either cayanne or black. How would that feel? Sorry, I just don't understand, I don't want to hurt anyone's feelers, but can someone explain why pepper?

And vet said to use a horse dose on the goat since it has to go throygh the rumen. (horse 1 gram, goat one gram, goat weighed about 120 lbs.)

pepper coagulates blood. I tried the flour thing and it didn't work. Pepper of either kind works good. I haven't had any problems with the goats showing signs of pain.
