I have dealt with Mastitis before, and when I saw your post the first time, I didn't want to worry you with that diagnosis. Howver, it could be a possiblity. I did want to hopefully ease your mind though, as our girl had much discomfort and her teats were hot.
The way it started; she was acting strange and her eyes were looking a little green, she is of course blue eyed. We called the 24 hour vet service to get an idea if eye color changes meant anything, and they shrugged it off as nothing. We waited until the next day, that morning she was on our couch in a ball, and just by the way her body moved, you could tell she wasn't feeling well. We took her to the vet that morning, and mastitis was the diagnosis.
While I don't wish that on anyone, it did educate me to check for often for hot or swollen teats, and since I know my girls the best, if one is acting a little off, to take it seriously.
Gaye, I really hope it isn't anything of concern, and honestly, I don't feel it is mastitis, but I am glad that you keep an eye on your girl so closely to catch anything wrong quickly. Lexus is in my thoughts. Please update us, when you get the chance.((HUGS))
EDIT: I also wanted to say our girl drained very thick milk, (almost pus like) by the third day. I researched to see if there is anything that may match symptoms of mastitis, and I found "Galactostasis", I thought it may match Lexus' symptoms closer than mastitis. Here is a website regarding Galactostasis.http://www.waterlooanimalhospital.co...ticles/K5O.txt
