    Ok....my vet left me with 2 follow up injections for each boy.....if they are very much back to normal should I still give the injections? I just hate to call and bother my vet again with this question, so thought I would come to the next best place and ask you guys another silly question.....sorry for my lack of experience in being a goat mom! Jake the one that was the worst has already had 2 shots....I just hate stressing them out if there is no need....they had a very stressful weekend.

    yes you need to continue till they have had the pen for 5 days. It will continue to loose its effectiveness if you dont.

    Just like in humans when you feel better but you have to continue the treatment - its working but if you stop then chances are the bacteria isnt fully gone from your body.

    Yes...as Stacey said, please continue with it...a few cookies afterwards seem to help with the "stress"....they'll forget all about it in no time! (Don't forget a cookie for yourself!)
