My kids were debudded on Wednesday. All looked good until last night at feeding when I got a whiff of something nasty and searched it out. Only her left side is nasty. She is still eating and playing.

I have blue kote on hand but what can I clean it with first? Preferences?

One of my girls bumbed hers and she’s been a bit upset since. It’s a little bloody around the ring, but no discharge or smell. My vet, said, if we had issues, before infection, we could clean it like a regular cut and use blukote. Are you sure it’s infected? But, I just looked it up. It said to wash it right away with good disinfectant soap. Use antibioptic cream. Wrap it with glaze for 24 hours. Repeat daily. I think at this point th3 blukote would probably keep th3 germs in, and they need to get out. I’d go with the dressing. That’s how I’ve treated many many infected animals on the farm. Tricky part will making sure it stays on. Do you have vetwrap? I’d do the glaze and then wrap her head a bit with vetwrap to keep it in place since tape won’t stick to hair well. Good luck!

Yeah its oozing, and the smell is not burnt hair or flesh. I've always been told no to ointments because it needs to dry out not stay wet. And it will keep all the nasty stuff in.

I think it would hurt at that rate, how old is she? I would be careful when using nesoporne alot of the contain pain relievers that are toxic to some animals. I would use the wound wash spray first then iodion then maybe bluekota as if i remembering correct it has antibacterial antifungal properties. I would suggest essential oils but i don't know what would be safe on a goat much less a young kid.
