Help me interpret, please! Results from goat sample. Left side was no growth Right side grew Staphylococcus species (not Staph. aureus). In cows this organisms is considered a minor pathogen and usually does not cause significant problems. I am less sure how it affects goats. If the gland appears abnormal or if the milk is abnormal on that side I recommend you Treat with an antibiotic infusion product for mastitis such as Today, or cefalak. Treat six times (once after each milking for 3 days) Withhold milk for consumption as directed on the box lable. If it is near time to dry the goat off it will be more effective to dry her off and then treat her with a Dry cow product such as Tomorrow or Cefidry. Treat as indicated on box for dry cows.
