Mastitis is apparently a hard condition to cure in a goat because after 2 weeks of milking her every day, Susannah still has it. The vet inserted a drainage tube last week which has helped but he has also recommended amputating the udder. After researching online, I have discovered that it’s more common than you might think. I will keep you posted in the coming week.

    Makes sense to me. The more you take out the more you get. You could learn to make Goat Cheese.
