Our little buckling is just over a week old. I read in a book that once you can feel the little bumps it's too late. Another article said to do it between 1 & 2 weeks. We were able to feel the little bumps at 5 days old. And his previous owner said to wait a couple weeks. We are really confused. Ours does are disbudded and we would want him to be too. So is it too late? Could the vet do it some other way?
