Bought a little Nigerian Dwarf doe today and when we got her home we found what my sister thought was an abscess on her jaw/face. When they got her situated on a table i finally looked at it and thankfully it wasn't a cheezy abscess, BUT... it was FULL of hay slivers and what looked like wheat grains. We scraped the top off with a razor knife and started picking out all the hay stems and grains. got about half a dixie cup full of crap out. I assumed she had a hole(somehow) in her mouth and food was being pushed through. So I made my sister call the vet to find out what to do. I knew this kind of thing happened with horses but was suprised to hear the vet had never seen this in a goat in all his years! He gave us dosage and schedule for Pinnicillin and told us to get it cleaned out as best we could and call on Monday with an update. For such a small goat ti took 3 people to hold her while i opened her mouth and cleaned out inside(was GROSS). She seemed to enjoy my trying to flush it though. After that i picked out more stems and junk and finally flushed it to get any tidbits out. We gave her the pinnicillin and put some iodine on the hole and put her to bed. Her legs seem really sore after the injections(had to do 2), but I think it'll get better once the medicine 'distributes'. I am REALLY hoping someone else has experience with this kind of 'injury'. If so I would really appreciate any guidance or input.
