Ok so I'm pretty new at goats. I have boars, Nubians, and an alpine. My boar, I bought her at the flea market, surprised me and had a baby. He's about 4 months now and doing great. My momma, Ginger, I believe has mastitis. I tried milking her, I'm not getting anything out of her. Her utter is so uncomfortable that it's now causing her walking problems. I'm trying everything, and about to get a vet involved. Her utter is dry and rough feeling, I'm now putting utter balm on it, also going to try the coconut/peppermint remedy I've seen on here. We are also giving her antibiotics. My big question is how else can I help her? I can't milk her, because I think she's dried out. Her bag is semi hard, not rock hard like I've read on some posts. It's warm to the touch. My goat is eating just fine and walking around, although I can see the discomfort she's experiencing. This all happen kinda quickly. She's always had a lopsided bag so that's why I didn't think too much about it. It's now that I can see it's bothering her, and that's what made me start feeling her and found that there is something wrong. Any suggestions would help.
