Hi, we just got our goats last week. They were in need of some grooming, so we clipped them, trimmed hooves, etc. Anyway, the goat I am concerned about is about 8 years old--we are guessing by her teeth--and when we shaved her we discovered several lumps on her. They were not obvious when we bought her because her hair was so shaggy, and we didn't know to check for lumps. Well, she has 4 marble sized hard lumps on the side of her neck, one behind a horn next to her ear, one on her chest, one on her ribcage, a bigger one on her brisket, and a golfball size lump on her flank. This goat is also quite skinny as she was the "low goat" in her old herd and was picked on. We are milking her and pasteurizing the milk. I have a vet coming later this week to look at her, but the vets around here don't do much with goats. Should I be discarding the milk? Should I isolate her from my other goats? I have 2 other does and we found one lump on one of them but no others. My main concern is my families' health and I don't want to have animals around that can make us sick! Also, I am pregnant and I am the milker. None of the abcesses are ruptured. What would you do? Taking the goats back to where we bought them is not an option--"all sales final." The people we bought the goats from have many goats and drink the milk raw with no problems. I will definitely continue pasteurizing. This goat is very gentle and I would hate to have her put down, but the health of my family and the other goats has to be priority. Thanks!
