Hello
One of my ewes developed this growth/mass near her eye. Although pretty small it does tend to be disturbed and start bleeding excessively which is bothersome to her. Any ideas? I am on list for vet to come out but even worry about how are we going to remove this or treat it being so close to the eye. Thought about asking for a steroid.....

That is unusual looking!

Did it go through a stage where it was bald and pink and oozing before it turned to this dark scabby look? If so, it kind of reminds me of this thing a dog of mine had once. They called it a hystiocytoma.

It sure takes the vet a long time to come out. The vet I use is expensive for a farm call.
$75 plus mileage and $200 per hour. Needless o say, I load them up and take to the vet. I hope your ewe can see the vet soon.
