My son has 3 Nigerian Dwarf does that he has owned for more than a year now. The oldest one, Windy, developed an abcess on her cheek/jaw, right after we got her. In looking it up, I was afraid it was CL. We took her to the vet, he cleaned her up and had the lab check it. It was not CL, according to the lab. A month or so after she healed, another abcess. Again, negative. It has been nearly a year with no more abcesses, and now she has another one. This one burst today and is draining. I found it this evening after I got home from work. My question is, can I clean this myself ? I watched the vet and all he really did was hose it out with peroxide, best I could tell. Can this be CL and the tests still be negative? Should I go ahead and take her to the vet to let him clean and test it again? Neither of the other goats have ever had this. I read the sticky about CL and it said that you should catch the abcess when the hair is coming off, but the hair never comes off. It just bursts suddenly. Help!
