    Our goats have not been vaccinated before we got them, or tested for cae, we will be starting by giving them the cdt shot and have them tested, my question is, can we give the CDT vaccine to the goats in milk? I know we can vaccinate the babies at 5 weeks and then a booster shot after 3 weeks.
    Thanks, EZ.

    You're itechnically supposed to give goats the CDT shot when they're young. If you had a pregnant doe, you could give her the shot 30 days before kidding, to provide some in the colostrum. It isn't really recommended to give adult goats the CDT shot.

    Yes.
    This is incorrect. You do give CD&T to adult goats, kids must have a series.

    x3 what they said. give the adults 2 shots at 3-6 week intervals just like the kids if their vaccine status is unknown. and if you are drinking the milk there shouldn't be a problem with that either.

    Thanks everyone for the replys. We are waiting until the babies are 5 weeks and then we're giving everyone (adults in milk and kids) the CD T shot.

    I am doing the same. I was going to give my Izzy her shot 60 and 30 days before she gave birth but then I was worried if I got her dates wrong so I decided to wait until the kids were 5 weeks and then go from there.
    @Southern by choice @frustratedearthmother, when I give my doelings their first shots at 5 weeks, can I give the shot to their mother even if she is still nursing them?

    Thanks, I was worried the kids might get too much.
