|Quit checking my butt and give me some darned grain already,|
can't you see that I'm wasting away to nothing here?!?!
I'm not sure if Herman, Lily and Pickles ever got their C&DT shots when they were younger (doubt it though) so I went ahead and did it. I suppose I should have given it to them when we first got them here, but I forgot. At least now everyone will get their shots at the same time every year.
I use Bar Vac CD/T which is a vaccine for the prevention of enterotoxemia, or "overeating disease", and tetanus. Each goat, regardless of size/weight, gets 2mL subcutaneously (i.e. under the skin) each year.
The kids will receive their shots at 2-3 weeks and a booster shot 4-6 weeks later.
Here is a good website explaining Enteroxtoxemia.

And if you want to see me in the next ten days, you can find me in the goat pen, checking out goat butts.
