What could this be ?
This kid doe is 3 weeks old and she has had this for about 5 day's,it's pink now and looks better ,the doe is acting fine and ...I have put vaseline & "Today" mix together on it and also the "purple lotion" stuff and also "Fura Zone" mixed with vaseline mix and last night mixed " Nu-Stock " with vaseline and applied it but as you can see it's still puffy and not well. What else can I do ? I have never had this before.

It actually looks like a prolapse that wasn't put back in very well. I would ditch all the stuff you are using and see if preperation H would shrink it down. Also try some baby bendryl for her weight, same weight as a child...to see if it isn't and allergic reaction.

Blister beetles, found in alfalfa hay can cause blistering around the anus and vulva like this also. Vicki

Thanks Vicki ! Hmm I was wondering about the hay myself, I didnt see any blisterbugs but I did find some sticker stuff with little green balls on it, The doeling was fine and then she layed in the hay and then had the swollen booty , she never has seemed to be bothered with it tho , I will do exactly as you said above with the bendryl and prep H tonight .

THANKS SO MUCH !

I'd think these were Bull nettles. If the little green balls are left to ripen, they turn yellow. Oh, and these hurt like crazy when stuck into your hand.

That makes me hurt looking at it...OUCHY....
I had an adult doe's vulva swell up and the skin started sloughing off, wasn't sure what it was and she only done when in heat so I started putting diaper rash ointment on her and it went away, weird and yucky...I hope she gets better soon...

ow again,
Autumn

I've seen baby does with red, swollen booties that had little pimples, and we figured it was staph. I cleaned it with chlorohexadine and it healed.
A friend once had a doeling with an infection on her booty that needed to be treated by the vet. We wound up naming her Fanny.

I found out today what the stickery stuff with green ball's is, that's all in the hay I bought and it's " toxic HORSE NETTLE " I talked to the NEW hay guy and he told me about it and it's the same stuff that the cow has nightshade poisoning post,the guy said it was rampant due to the spring rains.

I will have to burn or bury the other hay as the nightshade spreads easily into pastures by the seeds from poop,birds or wind.

The goats are back eating fresh new clean HORSE quality hay ,the booty kid .. looks a bit better and seems to have the swelling going down.
