Speaking just about the CDT vaccine, I have GoatVac brand on hand, the warning is on the bottle. I also have Tetanus Antitoxin vaccine, Colorado Serum brand on hand, the warning is on the bottle. As for other shots, I don't know if the warning is on the bottle for those or not.I would feel more comfortable with one... but not that you mentioned the price... Are there certain shots that are more likely to cause anaphylactic/ adverse reactions than others?
My goats have received CDT vaccinations before, not from me. If they didn't have a reaction then, they won't have one anymore from CDT vaccines?Unfortunately, the only way to know if an adverse reaction or anaphylactic shock will happen, is when, and if, an adverse reaction happens the first time the medication is given. There is no real way to know if an allergic, adverse or anaphylactic reaction will happen until it does.
My goats are actually not castrated. I've been looking into it... I wanted a vet to come give them their first shots, so I could watch and learn, but I can't find a vet that I like to do it.Did an online search, looked at the labels of all the different brands of CD&T vaccine, each and every one has the warning about anaphylactoid reaction. A thought came to mind earlier this morning, if your goats have been wethered, there is a good likelihood they have received a CD&T vaccine(s) in the past. Maybe asking the owner(s) whom you got your goats from whether the vaccine and/or follow up booster was given before, what ever method was used, the goats were castrated could answer the question if a reaction of any type occurred.
Not necessarily, but highly unlikely. An anaphylactoid reaction means: adverse reactions could worsen with repeated use if there is a sensitivity to any of the ingredients when given for the first time. Anaphylactic shock is the most extreme presentation of an allergic reaction and only happens rarely the large majority of the time. Usually, if there is a known adverse reaction, premedication before hand is required to lessen the effects of a reaction. For unknown responses to a substance, close observation for signs of a negative reaction for 20-30 minutes would be wise. Depending on the severity, medication is given to counteract (calm down) the allergic response. Antihistamines (Benadryl) for mild reactions, steroid for medium reactions (prescription only) and anaphylactic shock requires immediate professional care and treatment.My goats have received CDT vaccinations before, not from me.
