Alright cool. I will find a sterile container. But shouldn't I vaccinate anyway? Is there negative aspect in vaccinating? Why does it matter that I have a false positive?.
But I'd rather have a false positive than a positive positive. They only drawback to vaccinating is that you can't test?If you vaccinate for CL the antibodies test will detect cl antibodies when you test whether your goats have CL or not for the rest of their lives. You will never know if your goats are really negative or positive and prone to sprouting abscesses internally or externally at random times forever. I suggest only vaccinating for CL only if your pus test comes back positive (or if an antibodies test comes back positive twice). It's more of a cutting your losses vaccine. I believe it mostly helps them not get it as badly rather than not getting it at all.
The common thought in the goat community is that the antibody detecting blood test for CL is less accurate, but the pus test is always spot on. The chance of a false positive would be significantly decreased if the test were repeated. The pus test is just plain better.
