CL is terribly contagious, but it wouldn't be passed from one animal to another inutero. If she has an abcess that ruptures when other goats are around her it is almost likely that they will get it. I had it in my first doe and it went to her udder and I had to put her down.....Very sad. Best of luck with her.
