I don't think we do... Last time we took a goat to the vet to be examined for CL, it took WEEKS for the information to get back to us. We're in a very remote areaDo you have -- perchance! -- a State Vet Lab office near you? In VA we can have several tests run with samples we take in for a nominal fee. So, often an infection can be detected & if you have asked for sensitivity, they can advise best antibiotic (if that can resolve the problem). they do coggins, many types of cultures & tests for diseases.
I am fortunate to have one only 20 miles from me. Here they will also do necropsy at the facility. For many farmers this is a place to narrow their scope of treatment. Oh, the vets send their own testing samples there, also. It is a State Lab designed to control and detect animal health issues.
Just a thought to decide if infected.
