    I can't thank everyone enough for all the help I have already gotten. My questions just keep on coming though....I am going to get some minerals today as well as set up something for baking soda for them in their pen. Now I'm on to deworming and vaccinating. I read through a lot of posts on another section here which was great.

    So what I really need is to clarify a few things - I know I can get injectable Ivermectin from the vet and I'm sure I read that I actually give it orally - it this correct?

    Is there a way to estimate the weight of the goats for dosage?

    What does CD/T stand for?

    CD/T = Clostridium Perfringens Types C & D Plus Tetanus Toxoid

    C & D is the vaccination against enterotoxemia - also called overeating disease. Do a search there was a thread about this not to long ago

    I actually tried a search, but it told me that the term CD/T was too broad and I needed to narrow it down. Which I couldn't do because I didn't know what it stood for lol. I read a thread on it, but all the references to it just used the abbreviation.

    You can get Ivomac Injectable from your local feed store's....
    yes ...you can give it orally or under the skin.....Most like giving it by mouth ....but depending on the situation... if they have a certain type of lice ect. ... it treats the problem ....injecting it.. :wink:
