    We extend quarantine time depending on the animal.

    One doeling was in quarantine for 4 months, only recently added to the herd. She had chronic respiratory issues and multiple other things. She enjoys being with the herd now.

    Shots , worming, and the big 3 are tested for. We recently also started testing for Bruc and TB.

    what do you think about a goat that you're getting back that you sold after 3 months. as far as I can tell she's fine except for they tried to kill her by not dealing with parasites. I've had her home 10 days she's been wormed in about to get a second dose and fecal run I'm just not sure I'm just putting on weight again and and seems to be doing fine got to get paranoid about Johnees.
