Thanks All -
The vet didn't suggest surgery, seems to think massaging will get it moving, at least that's the impression I got.
I'll have to remember to wash my hands!
I'll try cider vinegar in water - any idea how much and does it taint the milk (using her milk for 2 lambs while I found out what the lump was, now she's had antibiotic jab - can't remember withdrawal period) one lamb was a bit of a 'runt', but she seems to have got going OK, I don't want to put her off her milk.
Quote - You can get uddermint from any farm store
The vet just said she would order uddermint, I didn't argue, I suppose she'll want to 'make a bit' on it. I've never used udder cream on these girls, sounds like I'd better be buying some, I thought the udder mint was a 'moisturiser' to help with the massaging? - or what does it do?
Googled 'blocked milk duct' last night last night, came up with the human condition, sounds painful, but suggested sucking helped to clear it, would one of these vacuum 'milking machines' help?
Yes, ALWAYS something to worry about with goats.... and sheep, and dogs, and human kids...
True, we also took dog down with a little lump behind his tooth, vet is hopeful it's an age thing - something beginning with 'e' but can't remember the word.
