Minor surgery for Chummix Goat

Chummix Goat is fine- really. Keepers noticed a few weeks ago a mass under is armpit.  It didn’t drain like it was an abscess from one of his vaccines.  So, we scheduled an early morning time for Dr. Cannedy to come to remove the mass and send it off for testing so we can learn that everything is well with our big noisy goat.

Below are photos from this morning’s procedure.  Chummix is up and about and eating and acting as he usually does. The only thing  you might notice is his shaved arm pit.

The mass- the size of a large grape.

    Good question Shawntel. We have to wait for the test results to tell us what the lump is/was. Once we know that, we’ll be able to gauge how likely it is to return.
