I have a Red Wattle that weighs about 45 pounds and she has a hard lump the size of a golf ball near her wattle. she also has a couple of dime size lumps on her side. How can i tell the difference between an abscess and a tumor and should i attempt to lance the one that is on her neck? She hasn't received any shots that would cause a shot abscess but she is in with her siblings and on pasture.
I also have penicillan onhand would it be worth giving that a try? and does anyone know dosages?

thanks

Is it still there? If so, I might try lancing it ever cleaning the spot very well. Has it grown or shrunk at all in the last couple days?
