    With the start of the new year, many are placing orders to restock much needed item needed for managing our herds and flocks. I thought it would be good to start a thread so those that are newer to this the world or raising livestock might have some good resources.

    This is for all animals, so I decided to put this in "random ramblings". I hope others see this and post some of their favorite places.

    Here are a few of my favorites:

    I’ve never bought anything livestock/animal related on line except a bad of goat treat pellets. I would love to have feed/treats/supplies come to our door and not have to drive around looking for them.

    I know you can buy chicks, ducklings, eggs, etc. online or through a catalog. Is there such a site where rabbits, and other small critters?

    Have any others had problems getting Tetanus Antitoxin? I can't find it anywhere. My vet doesn't have it and can't get it either. :( Several of the sites will let you go through the order process only to cancel the order after it's placed or post it "out of stock" at the last minute.

    Did you try Valley vet?

    We probably need to order more. I’ll have to ask my vet if she knows anywhere to get it from.

    I did - they don't have it. I tried every supplier that google brought up - nothing! I tried TSC ordering online and they accepted my order and then canceled it within 5 minutes. I called my vet and even they can't get it. He said they haven't had it for several months and they think they might not get any for several more months.

    They said there is a nationwide shortage. I hope they're wrong! :fl

    We can’t find any in this area either. The only tetanus I can find and have is CD&T.

    They aren't wrong exactly....It's a semi-global shortage as well, and it appears to be related to another shortage.
    One of the major manufacturers (Merck) has had problems with their production of human pediatric hepB vaccine for many months (since mid 2017) and it is expected to continue.
    Another drug manufacturer, Glaxo, is stepping up production to fill in the void, but that is what is causing the shortage of the TaT..
