Hi again,

I’m checking my goat medical supplies and noticed I’m out of the antitoxin but I can’t find it anywhere online, or my local tractor supply.

Any ideas where I can find some?

its getting hard to find. Be sure to b get the antitoxin and not the toxoid.

Milk of magnesia is good to keepion hand and can be used if no cd Antitoxin.

The toxoid gives long term immunity, but it takes 10 days to 2 weeks for the body to start building the immunity. The initial
Injection is followed 3-4 weeks later and is supposed to give immunity for about a year. It may last longer, some people do not give the booster yearly.

The ANTI toxin is for immediate immunity. (To prevent or hopefully cure clostridial diseases caused by over eating, getting into chicken feed, etc.) But it wears off in a couple weeks and you need to give the toxoid.

Refrigerate both.
