Vaccinations

In goats we recommend using Glanvac 6 as protection against cheesy gland (CLA), black disease, black leg, malignant oedema, pulpy kidney, and tetanus.  This product is licensed for goats and requires two 1ml doses under the skin a month apart. You can vaccinate at any age and it’s good to get a first shot in at disbudding. For optimal protection have the dams fully vaccinated before they kid.

The other vaccination goats need is against toxoplasmosis. Toxo causes abortion and birth defects, goats only need one injection in their life to be immune, this must be done before mating. We provide this service in December of each year. All your does need to be done-both the adults and the replacements. Once they are injected they are protected for life.
