Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

My 4h goat has something on her bottom that looks like fungus. At first, we used vetricine product that made it shrink a bit but now it is back. Has anyone else experienced this or knows what it is?

I use tea tree oil castile soap diluted to kill questionable fungus growths?

It might be a polyp...

I had a doe that had scabs similar to this.  A friend of mine has a doe with similar lesions.  Later they became scabs that would bleed.  Her vet said that is was cancer.  We both treated it with salves etc.  Really nothing to do but keep them comfortable.  My doe kidded for several years with no problems while it was under control and was a great mother.  Sadly, last year it got so bad and angry looking, we had to put her down.  I think it spread to up inside her and she was in obvious pain.  I have heard that goats with very pink skin anywhere on their body, not covered by hair, are susceptible, in climates that have lots of sun.  This is my experience.  I am not trying to make a diagnosis.

Hi Emily! I just saw this post. It's in the blog section, and not that many people see it. In the future, if you post in the "Forum," you will get a response much quicker. Many of us receive notifications whenever there is a new post in the Forum.

As for your goat -- I haven't seen anything like that before in person, other than it just looks dirty or like a scab. Is it gone now?
