The increased temp would worry me. If she was my animal, she would be getting treated at this point. If the mastitis gets too well established, and is staph, it will become a chronic staph infection that will come and go and you will never get rid of it. They will be fine for days at a time, then have a flairup, and then go away again. She can also infect any other animals that she beds down near as it can leak small amounts of the staph infection while laying down, and then it could be contracted by another animal laying near that spot. It will also be passed from one teat to another from the nursing kids. Staph is a b$@#h to get rid of if you are able to do so.

Yup she got a penicillin shot tonight. She wasn't getting worse but also not getting better, and the weather is not on my side. High temp and humidity. Hopefully the course of penicillin will do its job, if not probably will go for the Draxxin from the vet.

I'm very grateful that her kids are nursing her as I think it is keeping the mastitis at bay and the injury has healed up nicely. The udder doesn't feel particularly warm and it's not apparently bigger than the udder.
