    I thought you'd already put it there when I posted and I just overlooked it.

    If you did it afterward, then I take back my chair / oops. :D

    So you bought a baby goat.Now what?

    If you didnt get it from a breeder, one of the first things you should do is find a goat mentor (local breeder, preferably with knowledge about the breed you have) or a good, goat-savvy veterinarian locally.

    I would like some info on shots to give the doe. Also, when to vaccinate the kids and what those shots are. De-worming?

    Vaccinations

    CD&T - Administered SQ

    Pregnant Does: 3-6weeks before kidding

    Kids: Mama vaccinated as above – kid first is 4-5 wks of age - Booster 3-4 weeks later

    Kids: Mama not vaccinated as above- First at 1 wk of age - Booster 3-4 wks later


    De-worming should be on an as needed basis only with a fecal or FAMACHA score to back it up.
    It should not be done as a preventative.
