Thank you so much Trob1 for your help and concern but I dont think throwing a bunch of chemicals at them is going to help much. I agree that I will deffinantly find a vaccination and vaccinate everyone as a preventative and to make sure no one else is harboring the germ but I dont want to stress them anymore. The weather is supposed to be great for a while so hopfully things will look up. This season has just been absolutely insane witht he ups and downs. Thank you everyone for yous suggestions and condolences. Does anyone know if tractor supply would carry the pnumonia vac?trob1 said:Also wanted to say that if this were my herd everyone would be getting a shot of Bio-mycin 200 then put on auromycin 4 gram crumbles dosed at 1 oz per goat to give them 250mg of tetracycline top dressed on their feed once a day for at least a month. This is highly contagious and should be treated agressivly. They could all be harbering the germ and with weather changes or stress bam an outbreak will happen.
The things I suggested are not chemicals!Thank you so much Trob1 for your help and concern but I dont think throwing a bunch of chemicals at them is going to help much.
Any of those vaccines will work but keep in mind that using a vaccine while in the mist of an outbreak is not a good idea. It would be like giving a goat the c,d & t vaccine to a goat with enthro instead of giving them the C D antitoxin. You need to insure all goats are healthy first or you are wasting your money, time and risking their lives. You really need to read up on this type of pnumonia.cjpup said:How about this one? I can actually get this one from my local tractor supply:

Also, One of my other feed stores had a CD&T plus pastruella pnumonia vaccine. I cant remember the name of it though. Which one would you guys suggest out of the 3? The first one I would have to ship in from Jeffers.
