I have two goats. They are never around any other goats. They are both 6 years old. Each has had a pus filled lump on their cheek, just behind their lips. Do you think this is CL? I lanced the other one's lump about 2 weeks ago. I didn't get any of the pus on anything. I cleaned her up with betadine. Now this one had the same thing. They are supposed to be going to get bred at the end on the month, but I won't take them until I have them tested.
If you have any other goats I would QT these guys but it is likely too late as they have already popped. I would send in samples of the abscess and get it tested for CL. It is better to be safe than sorry when you are dealing with abscesses.
