    My local feed store sells a CDT vaccine for cattle and swine but the label does not mention goats. Is this vaccine okay for my goats or do I need to order one that is specifically for goats? I could order the goat vaccine online and it is only about $4.00, but the shipping would bring the total to over $20.00.[​IMG] Much cheaper if I can just use the one our feed store carries.

    I use BarVac cd/t specifically labled for goats and sheep......made by Boehringer Ingelheim..2 ml sub Q...then repeat after 21 days for kids...once a year at the same dosage for everything else. You could google that brand name and to get the specifics...and possibly compare to what you have available....Or just call your vet and ask him/her.

    Yep. I use BarVac also. My goats also get a rabies vaccination as it is highly reccommended here.
