I am looking at what shots to give my new goat. I think I'll hold off a little as she is pregnant and I want to wait until closer to kidding time so the kids can get the full benefit. I read that a month prior to kidding is correct. I THINK she is two months out, so I was planning on giving her the shots the first week in June. In any case, I'll definitely be giving the CD/T. They do carry it at Big R, but they sell it in a big bottle. I have always gotten shots in syringes that were already filled with correct amount in little packages (for horses), or in tiny bottles with the exact amount to use (for dogs/cats.) How much do I give my goat? She is a nigerian dwaf. I have heard some people say that giving Bose when not needed can cause problems, because they can have a selenium overdose. I do not know if we are deficient in selenium here, although I remember my 4H handbook saying Oregon WAS, but that was ten years ago! Lol. I live in S. Oregon. If I give it to her without knowing our states soil mineral balance, can it hurt her? I have been providing her with a mineral block which has added selenium, but she doesn't seem to be using it. I even tried chipping off pieces, grinding it up and offering it to her in a bucket, but she doesn't seem to touch it. I was told by someone goats won't eat the minerals they need, so you have to grind it up and add it to their feed so they'll eat it. Should I do this, and how much exactly should she get ground up in her feed every day? Also, should I NOT be giving her the selenium mineral block? I can always pick up a red trace mineral block. (The selenium one is green.) Sorry for all the questions, it seems a bit more complicated than horses because there is so much less info out there than with other animals. Goats are not popular enough among general society or VETS! Lol.
