One quarter of our jersey cow's udder was injured in a dog attack last weekend. It was a single bite, minor compared to her other injuries, but the milk from that quarter was tinged with blood for two milkings. Then the milk cleared, but yesterday I milked a big white clot out of that quarter. Is that just part of the normal healing process, or is it something to worry about?
Thanks,
Kristin

I'd say treat it like mastitis, complete with infused/inserted penicillin. It probably IS mastitis, although externally induced. Anyway, with what that poor animal is enduring, a little extra treatment won't hurt and may help. She certainly doesn't need an extra internal source of infection getting established.
