    We use Poly Serum which is the same thing. We give newborns 3cc SQ along with 3cc CD Anti-Toxin and then use it any time a goat is sick or stressed.

    Do you mean Bovi Sera that Hoeggers sells?
    Yes, I have used it once on a very sick little wether that came down with shipping fever/pneumonia after he arrived here at 12weeks......we had a very hard time getting him over it and I was a bit ignorant back then when it came to goats and my vet was not much help.....I called Anne Hoegger and she very much recommended it.....I know some here will not use it. I had nothing to loose.....my guy is a pet, not a breeding doe. I will say he is my healthiest boy now and will be 3yrs old the end of this month, I can't say it was from giving it or not.....I will say had I had some last month when one of my other wethers became ill and I ended up losing him, I would have used it! I do now have some in my frig for just in case!
