Week Photo Timeline of FormalinTreated CLA Abscess

 Some of the photos are blurry, tried to get too close I guess but this gives you an idea of what to expect when you treat CLA with formalin.

(This was a fairly large abscess - inject only enough  to fill abscess but not burst it)
3 Days after injecting formalin

re injected 1 1/2 cs into areas of abscess that didn't seem to be responding
by turning harder and dark

Another view of the abscess showing how it is now sticking out further than before, and getting darker and harder as the formalin "kills" the CLA bacteria
19 days after injecting formalin

the ridge around the abscess is beginning to form - the center getting darker and harder

Now appears to be a knob sitting on the skin but is still very much attached. 
 6 weeks after injecting CLA abscess with formalin
6 weeks after injecting CLA abscess with formalin, now is beginning to have a
callous appearance on edges of abscess
 Another view of CLA abscess 6 weeks after treatment
 Another view of CLA abscess 6 weeks after treatment
you can see the shadow of how much is actually sticks out from the skin
this is approximately the diameter of a half dollar.
This is about ready to drop off the body. 
CLA Abscess Dropped off after 8 weeks
About 8 weeks after the formalin treatment,
The CLA Abscess fully  contained and the bacteria killed and hardened by the formalin dropped off and leaves a raw spot on the skin  which later scabbed over slightly, and completely has gone, no scarring, hair grows over the spot  without any indication there was an abscess- and no more abscesses have formed on this goat.
This treatment lasted from July 19, 2010 when the injection was administered until  Sept 7, 2010 when the no longer infected abscess fell off the body.
