Vinca is a 4 yo Nubian. Approx 160 lbs (but i really need to weight tape her, which I'll do before I do any interventions). Shes heavy bred with her third frshening, and I dont have a due date, but it wont be long now. With her size, I'm thinking at least twins, and although she hasnt uddered up yet, her teats are sizing up and she looks like she dropped a bit since yesterday. Acting absolutely normal, eating and drinking and playing well, just her loveable self. I saw bloody looking matted area on her left butt area, and thought maybe it was discharge before kidding. I just checked her- and was really surprised. Its not vaginal,its something skin related. A several inch rectangle apppears to have a nasty skin infection, and when I was parting hair to try and see just what the sking looked like, a doime sized peiceof hair just pulled right out leaving a raw oozy open patch. Bloody with a pus like looking exudate, but not actively bleeding. Looks like a nasty skin infection to me. Looked her over good, and shes got a larger patch of it along her left barrrel, just about where the milk vein runs, and it extends up into the area where her back leg starts. Didnt find any more. No obvious signs of lice or other skin parasites, I didnt see anything moving. She loves to lay outside and has been laying down a lot more as she most does do when heavy bred. Its been wet and cold and fairly rotten out for the last couple of weeks. She has a nice warm run in with clean straw, but doesnt use it that much unless its actively raining. Copper bolused a couple of months back. Up to date on worming. Funny thing is her hair seems to be curling on some unaffected areas, just at the ends, almost as if its been singed. None of the other does have anything like this. The patch on her barrel area is just about where I gave her CD&T shot about two weeks ago. I'm wondering if it could be an inj site infection thats spreading like a staph or strep sometimes does. I need to go back out there, trim her down, wash the areas up with something and I'm thinking an antibiotic inj might be a good idea. I hate to do it with her so heavy bred. But I dont want this to get worse, or go systemic, that would be worse than any risk to the kids from the antibiotics. What would you give or do about this? Any suggestions really would be very much appreciated. Vets office isnt open, I already checked.
