OK, let me fill you in. A couple of weeks ago my dh and I were down by a neighbors who has MANY MANY animals. Well the theory down there is the strong survive, if they get sick they'll get over it or die trying. Last year the man was very ill and in the hospital so our family went down and helped them milk, I really liked this one doe and would have loved to have taken her home. Anyway while we were talking I saw her and she was covered in mud, and looked pretty pitiful. I asked about her and was told just to take her, cause she gets her head stuck in the fence and they figured the dogs would end up killing her if we didn't take her. I jumped on it and we brought her home. Now she had been running with the buck for months and may be pregnant. I noticed when we brought her home that one side of her bag was hanging lower than the other, but thought maybe she was starting to bag up if she was pregnant and didn't think alot about it. We wormed her with Ivermectin (thanks for the help with that one) and started her on good feed and she is in a nice grass lot. Now this is where my trouble begins. DH and I were out with the goats a little bit ago and I wanted to check her bag since it still looked lop sided and she had developed a cough. I milked the smaller side and out came a nice stream of colostrum, good news, until I squeezed the other side and out came some colostrum and then thick nasty mastitis looking goo. CRUD!! I was masaging the bag and sure enough she is full of small knots. I masaged and milked out as much as I could. Then hubby said "dear, you might wanna look at this" The side of her neck is one abcess after another forming down under the ear!!! :Bawling: I'm thinking it might be CL. So this is what I've got to figure out how do you treat a possibly pregnant, mastitis infected, possible CL case doe? Hopefully the cough is a cold and not internal abcesses, and I'm gonna try my darndest to milk out the mastitis, but the CL is another story. :help: In a way I'm kicking myself in the rear for getting her, but in another at least maybe her and her kids have a chance.
