Thread: hard lumps in fallow

    hard lumps in fallow

    Hi all,

    I had a call from a farmer this morning. He had shot a fallow yesterday, doe carrying. On opening up he found hard lumps all over the inners.

    Not just the lung worm scars the he is seeing more and more but this time hard lumps

    These are the only photos I have, and I need to be quick else he I'll be eating it as we speak. Typical old time farmer, eaten worse and not dead yet.
    I dare say its skinned and about to be butchered with the bits out to the foxes.

    From what he was saying the lumps are hard, and all over. Nothing on the ribs or spine.

    Thank guys for your thought.

    All the best
    Phil

    Just spoke to them, past over to the on call vet. nothing to worry about. destroy the carcass and gralloch disinfect and carry on.

    Fallow are wild roamers so nothing can be done other that what is being done with the live stock so inspect as normal and carry on.

    That answers that. but before he gets rid of carcass i want to take a knife to is and have a closer look.

    thanks again

    Phil.

    Rip roaring TB.

    Knife can be cleaned by boiling or a whole host of disinfectants. Cleaning off all visible contamination with detergent and overnight in bleach will be fine.

    Shame we had to infect the local foxes and badgers with the gralloch isn't it.......

    Thanks, by the way, to activeviii for posting these photos. Thanks also to Apache for the diagnosis.

    Perhaps we could have a "sticky" with photos of diseases in deer?

    If Admin created a 'deer disease' category in the galleries section we could all upload to it

    Good idea. Would want to be set up as a quick reference rather than massive long threads of speculative discussion though. Brief descriptions perhaps with, 'Suspected ..... but unconfirmed' 'confirmed .... name of disease/infection/parasite' as well as other useful info.
