    I have two goats a doe Nubian/pygmy cross and a pygmy buck. The buck is 5 months old and the doe is around 8 or 9 months old. I am new to goats and I do not know what is the best choice as far as worming or how often or if theres any other medications or any important things i should be doing to help keep my goats happy and healthy. Right now they are both at a great weight and are getting longer hair for the winter all seems healthy. is there any warning signs i should look for in case of an illness? thankyou!

    Your goats need to be vaccinated for clostidium perfingens and tetanus ASAP. You can get the vaccine at the feed store. Look for something like CD/T. It has both entero (clostridium perfingens) and tetanus.
