    This is concerning. I too have a 3 mo old I want to make a wether. He has had no vaccines (I just got him 2 weeks ago). No cocci, no cd/t. I had read I needed to give him cd/t before banding. I planned to give cd/t shot today, and band Friday. Any suggestions or warnings would help a lot.

    You need to give tetanus antitoxin for immediate protection..cd&t takes 2 weeks to become effective and if never vaccinated would need a booster as well. After doing the tetanus antitoxin you can vaccinate 10 days after if you choose.

    The only tetanus shot I see at Tractor Supply is a single dose Merck tetanus on animals and sheep 6 months and older. Is there a particular place I need to look for the tetanus antitoxin?

    Thanks, I was able to locate some from a vet. So since he has never been vaccinated before, I do a full vile? Wanting to make sure because it seems an awful lot and I know this is for horses.

    I see that on their website, but even if the goat is only 3 month old?

    Yes. Age doesn't matter.
