Mastitis...

Post by CarolineB » Sun Apr 19, 2009 10:37 pm

Our sow has lost 3 piglets who were feeding - I wonder if that's what started her milk problems. She has definite lump udders - some lumpy some okay. the back ones are sore -as she won't let me touch them.

I breastfed my baby and I know what it's like to get blocked ducts - which is what I think her forward lumpy ones are. I reckon I can massage thema away. the back ones I think are too far gone and she has mastitis. I'll get the vet asap.
