What do you guys think of the disbudding job of our 3 day old triplets by the vet, performed this morning?? I was not expecting their heads to look like this, particularly one of them. Pics on the forum look like neat little circles. Is the job botched? If so, what action would you take??

What method did the vet use? It almost looks like a cold treatment was used...
Did you watch the procedure?

If you think is wrong, talk to the vet.

When i had my very do it surgically, my goats came back looking like a horror show. But it was very effective and they never got bald spots. They look naturally polled.

I've not seen a disbudding look like that. But if she didn't use an iron, that may explain it.

It also looks like she rolled the iron over the buds. That's why no circles.

Thank you for taking a look at the pics and giving me your feedback. I'm pretty upset at how they turned out. I'm concerned with a higher risk of infection with such a large wound. I've contacted the vet asking more about the method used.
