View media item 2438I'm new here! I got my first three goats this summer! All ND. Two doelings and a wether. The smallest, my little runt doeling is 8 months old and only weighs 27 lbs. and just the other day I noticed that her face is starting to look crooked! She has a mild scratch on her nose, but it's just about healed up and she's eating and behaving normally. Is this wry face? Is there anything I should do or check to make sure it isn't something else. As she grows, will it get worse?

It looks like a very mild case of wry mouth to me, although I've had no experience with that sort of thing.

Welcome, glad you are here. :)

The face looks OK, but the jaw is off or swollen.
Does it hurt the goat?
Any bee's ect flying around that may of stung the goat? Did it all of a sudden appear?

You can have a vet look at the goat and they can say if it is or not. It will get worse, if it is wry face. :(

Thank you for your help!
It may a little swollen, she doesn't seem to be in pain or bothered when I touch it. This may sound crazy, but a month or so back we didn't get her copper bolus all the way down her throat and she chewed the metal a little. I tried to inspect the inside of her mouth, but that's not very easy and I didn't see anything.
Her jaw seems to stay off to the side.
