A friend of mine has a vet wanting to do something to a doe that we don't feel right about. He says it will be fine but hasn't been done before. The doe has Cancer on her udder and we took her to get a Mastectomy done but the vet says because of her age (7 years old) she may not survive the surgery. So, he wants to put a Latex band (like they use for castrating bucks) on her bag so it will fall off. I told my friend that I didn't like the sound of that because I feel that the udder had different "lines" running to it than testicles and I personally would have took a chance on the mastectomy before I let the vet experiment on the goat. She told the vet she wanted to think about it some more. Money is not the object here either, this woman will dish out the money for the surgery to save this goat from dying of Cancer if that is the way she decides to go. But I thought I would try to find out if anyone else has had this "banding-thing" done to an udder before to give her some other opinions to help her decide.
