It’s time for the goats to receive their annual shot of BoSe and CD/T. We try to keep things as natural as possible but we don’t want to compromise the health of ourselves our animals either. We want the best for our animals and want to ensue their kids have the best opportunity they can to enjoy the world around them.
Here are the details about the shots, how to purchase and what we gave our goats. Please contact your vet before administering.
Supplies needed for goat shots
Syringes and needles - 6 cc syringes and 1″ 20 gauge needles works well for IM (intramuscular) shots to adults.
BoSe - Requires Rx (contact vet), given IM
