Goats/himroid in goat


Have a 4yr old pygmy doe that just had a very difficult delivery 1breech. Had to be pulled out 2nd wouldn't come out even with pulling and rearranging had to have emergency c section that was Wednesday .seems to be doing ok but tonight I noticed what looks like a himroid about the size of small grape on her anus .any suggestions ?

May have been caused by pushing with no success. Other than keeping the area clean, I would leave it alone with the expectation that it will go away. I would also give your vet a call. There is generally no charge for a phone call and s/he may have some good advice. (Also keep an eye on it when she is pooping to make sure it is not worsening.
