A pic would really help...

It could be iodine deficiency (pretty rare) or milk goiter (fairly common) or bottle jaw from severe enemia...if her eyelids are pale (lt. gray or white) then I'd say bottle jaw and deworm her w/ a GOOD dewormer asap.

It could even be CL but not real common at such a young age.

THanks I will try and find a picture. I have 1% Ivomec in stock how much would you suggest? and should I go ahead and give the rest of the goats Ivomec also?

It depends on whether or not ivomec works in your area / on your goats for the type of worm that would cause that severe anemia....

Ivomec won't touch Barberpole here.

I use injectable cydectin (1cc per 100#) for barberpole worm.

And...if the other goats aren't pale (anemic) then, no, I wouldn't unless you have a fecal ran to prove they need it.

Overuse of dewormers / using the wrong dewormer / guessing what worms you have / under or overdosing are ALL leading to mass dewormer resistance.

Talk to an experienced goat producer or good goat vet in your area....

Keep an eye on it...IF it is CL, you do NOT want the abscess to burst on it's own. If you can a vet to lance it and send the exudate off and test for CL. Yes the goat is young, but it isn't impossible to have it.

I concur...leave them alone and put away the dewormers...have a fecal examination done if you Must...but their eyelids wouldn't suggest that they are over-run with any type of parasite...


I certainly wouldn't lance it or have some improperly trained vet try either...jmo
