Usually for bacterial diarrhea. It's very hard on their stomach flora though, so afterwards use a probiotic.

Goats don't get the cattle diseases that Triangle 5 vaccinates for. They are specific for cows.
Neomycin is used for E-coli, Salmonella, etc. These are usually young kid problems.

No. You just need to keep them healthy. A healthy goat with a good immune system is more than likely not going to get any of those things.

Most people give a tetanus vaccine. The C&D clostridia vaccine wears off in 3-4 months on most goats because of their metabolism and it is arguable as to it's effectiveness, but people give it anyway to be on the safe side. Karen is right though, if you keep your goats healthy, you don't need to give them any shots as they won't be contracting illnesses.
