I am incredibly new to the goat world, but was almost an instant addict--but am probably making huge mistakes. In January, I got a Nubian doeling who hit her year mark about a month ago. I was playing with all of my goats today and went to feel her utters (trying to get her used to the idea as the plan was to breed her this fall) and they felt abnormally big and hard. I had my husband look and he said she acted like it was painful for him to touch them. Now I am worried that I purchased a goat with CAE. I haven't had her tested (this development is only a few minutes old and it is Sunday), but I am particularly concerned because false negatives are so common with CAE testing--how do I know I can trust anything but a positive. Are there other possible causes for a hard/painful bag? If is is CAE what options do I have and can she infect the rest of my goats? I really enjoy her as she is quite sweet, but I don't know if I can afford to keep a goat that I can't breed/milk. Any advice is greatly appreciated. TIA!
