    I use a 20gage, needle that is 1/2" long for all my goats. The only time i find I need a different one is when I have to give a shot that is thick, and I need a bigger size (smaller gage) needle. I hope I have that right. :p

    I use the 1/2" 20 gauge for pretty much everything. Works great for me.

    I use 1/2 inch 20 gauge, but I prefer 22 gauge if I can find it.

    Chelsey, where do you get 29 gauge needles? :?
