I have a 3-month doeling that has a swollen, and kind of hard, dewlap-like skin under her chin, on her throat. It does not affect her jaw or chin. We just wormed her with Ivermectin on the 3rd of August. Any ideas? Is it worms, or something else? She is very healthy otherwise. :shrug:

Probably milk goiter, do you have a picture?

I've had a few boer kids with milk goiters and they've all eventually went away.

I'd love to post a pic, but I'm not well known enough here yet! What is milk goiter? I am more familiar with the sheep than the goats (these are our first kids). Is milk goiter more common in boers? Her sire is boer, the mom is nubian/sanaan.
